Iam surprised you guys open spam emails or email from unknow senders, I really dont understand it
Your reply suggests to me that you assume too much without checking with us. I use PayPal. The SPAM email arrived in the correct email account. There was nothing in the subject line to arouse suspicion. Once I opened the email, I realized it was SPAM, so I sent it to the SPAM folder. I never clicked on a link nor did I follow the instructions in the email hence no harm down.
Elizabeth, I'm not sure I understand your comment. Did you intend to type "email from a known place" or "email from an unknown place"? If it's the first, you never open any email without first checking Google.
How could either of you know if an email from PayPal is suspect if you have an account using that email address? PayPal regularly sends emails to me for updates, monthly statements, money in, money out, etc. The subject line in my email appeared (still appears!) legit.
