    Received the same email, it was sent to an email address that only eBay/PayPal know. The email contained my real name.

    The links connect to a Russian Address (I have not clicked on them but just looked up WHOIS) yesasia-payment-service.com despite USA addresses from Seattle also being present. I was very surprised too by the correct name in the address line.

    This one is the second one I have had in as many days. The first being an “account limited” notice purportedly from Paypal. Both also had my real name. A lot of people will be fooled by this.

    Same here. Paypal account that has never been used to buy anything, only to receive payments. I can’t see how they could have discovered my name and linked it to that email address unless PayPal (or one of their partners who has access to these basic account details) has been compromised.

    Got this email with name and email combination used on PayPal ages ago. Concerning that Paypal may be compromised

    I too have the same experience. Got the email today and like you it uses an email address only known to Paypal and ebay and with my full name. So strongly suspect that either Paypal or eBay have been compromised and account lists and names taken. Obviously they are after your password.

    I just received this as well. It was sent to an account that I once used only for Paypal, but haven’t for about a year. Also, it could have been used by anyone I’d done a Paypal payment with (Sony Online Entertainment, Blizzard, etc).

    Having my full name in the email certainly lent credibility to the scam, as I normally abbreviate my first name for all except officialdom. For a moment I thought I’d had my ID stolen again.

    Thanks for this. I got a bit worried when I saw an email sent to my PAYPAL address which included my real name. I even tried to login to YesAsia but realised it was just a phish when I saw that they didn’t have any records for my email address.

    It’s unlikely that PayPal has been hacked. Your PayPal address is shared with the seller every time you buy something off eBay, a few ebay sellers’ PCs have probably been hacked though.

    Got this one today too. Interesting that they knew my name and the email was to the address I only use with paypal. So either paypal have sold my details or got hacked. Not impressed by that at all.
