One tip to combat this, is to never, ever, ever, ever, ever click on a link in an email from Paypal, whether you are sure it's actually from paypal or not. Just make it a habit, that when you want to sign in to paypal, open a new window or tab and type in paypal's address yourself, and log in that way.

You can't ever be "fished" if you do that.
It wasnt a email that I clicked on. I got a email saying my account had been froze due to unknown charges...please contact us at.....1-800---- to get your account back in good standings. So I went to paypal and got the number to make sure it was the right number....called it and went from there. I never ever click on a link in a email.
