If you receive an email that perports to come from either paypal or ebay, and you have any suspician whatsoever that it might not be genuine, this is the procedure.

 

1) Don't reply, and don't follow any links.

2) Forward it to either - spoof@ebay.co.uk or spoof@paypal.co.uk - do not add anything to, or delete anything from, the message.

3) They will then contact you and confirm if it has come from them, or not.

 

Don't worry about forwarding something that is genuine, in error - they would prefer that you query a post that is genuine, than be taken in by one that isn't.
