I got an email from PayPal saying that they intercepted suspicious activity on my account and hence locked it. At first I fell for it since I also received a text message (purpotedly from my Bank) that a transaction on my Credit Card was declined. The grammar of the email was unusually exceptional and not like the regular deliberately goofed up spams.

Later, I grew suspicious because:

1. The credit card in question was hotlisted by me long ago. Called up the Bank and was told that they haven't received any request for processing and also said that the card is blocked and cannot be used until activated again.
2. The email contained a link to activate my account. Genuine emails don't have them, they just instruct you to login and activate. (The link turned out to be *.edu.my)
3. The PayPal Banner image came from a completely ridiculous domain (asian-hairextensions.nl)

Oh wait, the email I received it on was not the one I use on PayPal.

What I still do not understand is why I received the text message on the card, or is it just a part of the grand scheme to trick me?
