Yeah - make sure. Esp. to those who send an email to you.

!!! *ROFL* How true! What does this tell us about this email, hmmmm?

This should be: You should never follow any links you find in an email,
maybe unless you REQUESTED(!!) to get that email, and even then, retype
at least the first part of the URL instead of just clicking it -
remember the russian "a"! (And keep your brain switched on ;) )

I also got this email directly to my private mail addy.
It's just - I don't have a PayPal account, so I immediately knew... ;)

Crime is everywhere! They are actively trying to get you where you
feel safe. Better be paranoid...
