Please do not fill in this form and send it to the recip­i­ents. It is not from Pay­Pal. It is from crim­i­nals that can steal your iden­tity and make life mis­er­able for you.

For­ward a copy of the email to spoof@paypal.com and report this as an email scam. The sooner these crim­i­nals’ web­site and email accounts are ban­ished from the Inter­net the better.
