Paul, just in case we're at cross purposes ... if you went to paypal FROM that email and it was dodgy, you will have done exactly what the scammers wanted .... you won't have gone to PP - just somewhere that is meant to look like PP ... so they won't be getting back to you, they'll just be using the details you entered to go and buy stuff. I had a dodgy one a year or so ago and actually phoned PP to verify as it looked convincing. They said it was a hoax and could I forward them a copy of it. Thankfully I hadn't clicked on the hyperlinks to the fake PP site and entered my details, so the scammers didn't succeed.

I'd be tempted to phone Paypal if you can and explain the problem, but don't use anything from the email. Type the address in a new browswer window manually and get the phone number from there. I hope I'm wrong and the email was legit and they're already fixing the problem ... but it's safer to check  :tu:

IN FACT .... Go to Paypal ... new browser window, address entered manually (NOT from the email) .... and try to log in with your NEW password. If it tells you to go forth and ... you know ... then you've been had. You weren't changing you details, just telling someone else your original details. If your new password works, then check recent transactions and make sure there's nothing squiffy ... even if it's a few pence. Apparently a lot of scammers try small nominal 99p type transactions to make sure it's working before taking bigger slices. Just make sure you're on the REAL PP (in case you haven't already).

Whatever happens - good luck  :tu:

EDIT: I think most PP hits are from phishing emails and folks freely handing over their info so someone they think is PP but isn't rather than PP accounts actually being hacked.

Absolutely.  find  out for sure by just calling them.  Good luck!
