This is 100% scam and we should aware of this type of emails. Usually they include links like "click here to verify your account" etc.. and in most cases, this email isn't text format but image format where they insert hyperlink and as soon as click on the area of the mail, you'll be directed to another phishing site with the similar website like paypal (only the appearance,) if so open it, but don't enter any information and check the web address on the address bar, you'll see something like http://wwww.paypal.com (4 w's) or www1.paypal.com (3w's with 1), etc..
Just ignore it and forward or send this email to paypal directly to their Scam Alert email firstname.lastname@example.org
This has been circulating for some time now, so we need to be aware of this, they can easily copy your paypal's password and username/email address as soon as you attempt to login. There more with this, at your first attempt, you'll get an error message that your username or password is incorrect, at that time they've already captured your login account info and have been directed to the original paypal website. If you don't believe, use wrong/random email address and password, click login and see what happens.
This is What We Call Phishing.

Never log into Pay Pal at all by using an open email such as thsi. They are not from Pay Pal. Pay Pal does state to open a new browser window at all times to log in. They do not ever send an email with a lnk to log on to your account. I know for I have my account compromised twice this way and Pay Pal has told me how to go about logging in
