I just got this email from "PayPal". Thinking it's a scam. Anyone know? Thanks.

I agree this is a very poor attempt at phishing, not even payPol.com or some other twist on the correct domain name I bet if you hover over the link it is not paypal.com either.

this rates a 10 on the 1-100 scale of inevitability.

General rule of thumb is NEVER to click on links in emails asking for info. If there was a real issue, you could go to paypal.com and login to Paypal like normal in a browser and deal with it. Links in emails where they claim there is an issue are almost always scams and even the ones that might not be should be treated as scams and you can just open up a browser session yourself and login into the account normally.
