99% of these are scams. Usually you can tell because your NAME (the real name you gave when you signed up to PayPal, etc.) is NOT in the greeting. It says "Dear valued eBay member" instead of Dear John Smith.
Rule of thumb: If it doesn't have your real name in the greeting, it's a scam.
I get those emails all the time from EBAY and Paypal ..
Never really thought about it, but that is a solid point ..
