Damn Chris. Contact paypal for sure. You sure you didn't ask for a pink razor for Christmas? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/set1/smile/emsmilep.gif" BORDER="0">

did you go to your actual paypal page and check out the history, or just read the email?

I could have sworn all paypal emails start with<p>"Dear Chris (last name)"<p>then the e-mail begins.<p><br>Dude check with Paypal for sure. Call em right now if you can.
