Welcome here Stephen.

As Mac Ramses said, this is a phishing attempt. You can report this phishing attempt at the paypal website. Never trust emails that come from a company, but dont have an email address with their own domain. Real emails from paypal would have the paypal domain in the email address.

Being a victim doesn't mean you stand alone. We're here to help you.
