Be very careful. I have had this same thing happen to me, it is a scam. I sent a report to Paypal and deleted the email from my computer.

Forwarding a suspected scam email to Paypal (spoof@paypal.com) is very important. I've had to do it several times. They usually get the bogus site shut down within 24 hours. The other nice thing is they respond quickly to your email letting you know if it was indeed a scam. And you're helping to prevent others from getting scammed.

Some emails look entirely legitimate including from FedEx and various banks. When uncertain, I right-click on the link and click on the "Copy Link Location." I then open up a text editor and paste the link in there. If it's from a site I don't recognize, then I know it's a phishing email.
