They are just taking care of business – their business not mine and they have nothing to do with PayPal, a service we use frequently.

We got the following

Greetings from PayPal Customer Support.

Please be advised that we will deactivate the access of your account/s in PayPal if we don’t hear any actions from you.

It’s usually pretty easy to take care of things like this. Most of the time, we just need a little more information about your account or latest purchases. You can verify your account at https://paypal.com/

These communication channels are available to you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Thank you for your time with us!

The PayPal Inc Customer Support Team

Remember that cardinal rule – If in doubt – don’t.  In the world of the internet – be ever vigilant.
