I agree, looks wrong (well really everything looks right except those links)

it really is a legitimate looking message
(even the spelling / grammer is spot on, and it's correctly personalised)

was briefly tempted to click one of the links to see what happens
but no, been doing this too long to even do that just for fun
(no banking/shopping passwords are saved in my browser anyway, but...)

as mentioned:
if "paypal" et.al send me a message that sounds important I'll log on to paypal.com directly (not even via bookmark), NEVER via an email link, NEVER
...even when I can see that link address in the email status bar
... - dunno if for instance they can pad those with say <bs> chars etc, don't wanna find out.
