dose this look like a scam to any of you from pay pal

Dear Scott ,

Recently, some PayPal members have reported suspicious-looking emails and fake websites. As a result, we'd like to remind you of some tips to help keep your PayPal account secure:
Safely access your PayPal account by opening up a new web browser (e.g. Internet Explorer or Netscape) and type in the following: https://www.paypal.com/


Never give out information in an email; PayPal will not ask you to provide personal information such as your password, social security number, bank account and credit card numbers


Do not download attachments, software updates, or any application to your computer via a link you received in an email; PayPal will not ask you to download anything for your account to work


Choose a unique password and change it every 30-60 days


If you think you have received a fraudulent email, please forward the entire email to spoof@paypal.com and then delete it. For more information, visit the PayPal Security Center.

Thank you for your ongoing commitment to PayPal.

Sincerely,

PayPal

I've received a few emails from "PAYPAL" asking to updade my accounts. I always delete them. As stated above, PAYPAL doesnt ask for this information in an email so when I receive one of these emails i delee it and then go to PAYPAL diectly to see if this info is really required. So far it has not been, not even once.

I've also received some from ebay.

Be careful people... scammers are out there and will do anything to get your $$$$.

The e-mail you received is legit. I got that same e-mail today. PayPal is aware of the scam e-mail(s) circulating the web and is just letting you know what they do and do not do.

That PayPal email is for real. I got one also. If you read it closely, they tell you how to protect your account, and how to report a fradulent email. They also DON'T ask for any information from you.

It's a good idea to be skeptical anyway -- you can stay healthy that way!
