    This is a prime example of spoofing - Paypal only adresses e-mail to customers with their registered name, not "PayPal User" or "PayPal Customer" etc. I have reported the suspected fraudulent e-mail to PayPal for investigation

    I get it, and I'm not even a PayPal customer.

    If you examine the link, you'll see that, although it says paypal.com in the email text, the actual link is to something other than paypal.com.
