I've gotten several Emails today entitled "Dear PayPal Customer"
Quote
This e-mail is the notification of recent innovations taken by PayPal to detect inactive customers and non-functioning mailboxes.

The inactive customers are subject to restriction and removal in the next 3 months.

Please confirm your email address and credit card information by logging in to your PayPal account using the form below:

Email Address:
Password:
Full Name:
Credit Card #:
Exp.Date(mm/yyyy):
ATM PIN (For Bank Verification) #:
DON"T DO IT !!
I believe this is a scam to get your vital financial info

Surprised they didn't just go for the grand slam and ask for your SS# while they were at it!

Hope you forwarded that to someone at Paypal.

After a quick search it seems that they've had a number of similar scams impersonating as PayPal recently. I think they must be aware of it.
