Perfect example of spear phishing. You should be alright since you changed your password. Just like everyone else recommended, always type in the address directly just to be on the safe side.

email0.paypal.com/servlet/*insert random characters and numbers here*

When I click reply it says:
reply2@info.paypal.com

Unfortunatly I clicked the link to log in and it redirected me to the official paypal site with the padlock which is weird, I have changed my password just encase. The weirdest thing is it addressed me with my first and second name.

Oh yeah also, the two emails didn't have that little shield on them to say sent by a trusted sender.
Dear Mr. Juganot

TO CLAIM YOUR 2.5M USD IN FUNDS FROM THE BANK OF NIGERIA CONTACT ME.

MY CONACT:

DR. JIM GREEN

PHONE NUMBER: 1-800-NIGERIA


No, but seriously. Any banking/paypal emails, I refuse to click on. If it is real or looks like something possibly real, I just log into my actual account or call the bank.

No need to click links in emails for paypal or banking these days.

I got a email from one who managed to find dead relatives of mine without asking him. They got 7 million dollars for me all I have to do is pay in 2000 dollars to clear the money. I filed it next to my extracting petrol from a rock venture.
