Paypal Australia - possible scam?

Options
Hi,

I have just received half a dozen emails supposedly from Paypal Australia suggesting I have set up a business account.  I have not, so I suspect something has gone wrong or this is a scam.

Anyone else out there had similar?

Kind Regards,

Bill

Kind Regards,

    Probably a scam.  Look carefully at the email address that the emails came from.  Is it really PayPal?
    If it sticks, force it.
    If it breaks, well it wasn't working right anyway.

    6 Emails I received, all from what looks like service@paypal.com.au within 2 minutes.
    No 1 - Please confirm your information to continue to use Paypal - 14:55.
    No 2 - Please provide more info to start using your account - 14:55.
    No 3 - Set up your PayPal business account - 14:55.
    No 4 - Next confirm your email address  - 14:55.
    No 5 - your account has been restored - 14:56.
    No 6 - Your details have been updated - 14:56.
    Obviously I did not click any links or do anything in respect of these emails.

    Odd or what?
