Of course the first reaction from a Paypal user is to cancel the transaction thru the link that has been provided. And after putting your Paypal Address and Paypal Password.. bye bye.. all your account could be transfer very fast. So be very careful. What they did no know is my account was under limited account.

So be very careful with this kind of email. Another why it is better to use Mozilla Firefox.
