I've just received an email Headed 'Paypal - Receipt for your payment'.
When opened it is a receipt for a payment of 39.00 GBP to Skype (sales@skype.com). It says the shipping address is unconfirmed & states:
If you haven't authorized this charge, open a dispute at:
https://www.paypal.co.uk/helpcenter/open_dispute and get a full refund.
Instead of opening it I logged onto my Paypal account & there is nothing showing on it so must be some kind of scam.

It's a phishing attempt to get you to click on the link and login to "Paypal" thereby giving these tw*** your password to Paypal.
DO NOT CLICK ON ANYTHING

Instead forward the e-mail to spoof@paypal.com and you will get a reply from them in time.
