    Hey,

    I was just wondering if anyone else got an email supposedly from PayPal about a class action settlement. It has the "PayPal" logo on the top and is full of all kinds of legalese. I sent an email to the folks at PayPal asking if it was legit. Strangely enough, I couldn't paste the email in the form box because it contained characters not supported by the form.

    I guess I'll know soon enough.

    P.S. It's quite long so I've just included the top part. There's no mention of it (as far as I could tell) on PayPal's site.
