    Did any of you get an email from (seemingly) paypal telling you to login through a certain URL? I nearly did that but found that the URL did NOT take me to https://www.paypal.com but some strange address. Is it a scam?

    YES. Always check any link an make sure it is actually going to xxxx.paypal.com. Otherwise they can collect your username and password and go and get your real information on paypal and perhaps liquidate your accounts.
