The same scam operates on PayPal acounts. Anything addressed as "Dear Valued Member" is inevitably a con.

Indeed - anything that doesn't have my name (or username) as the addressee goes straight into the electronic version of the round filing cabinet in the corner.

ISTR that Paypal specifically state that genuine emails from them will always address you by name.
