    really? so far ive only got like 2 fake ebay/paypal emails ever since i had gmail, and i get this other stupid one that has fake watches, i wanna know how they do it, because in the spam folder before opening it, it shows text that says something and then if you open it doesnt have that text anywhere

    That makes 2 of us. Cause, I haven't given out my gmail address to anyone. They got it however, even though I never gave it out, never linked to it, never posted or in anyone published the address, and tbh haven't even used it to send email...

    They did however, cause when I got in there recently, I got 27 spams from the watches, to viagra and enlargement of one's member, to all kindsa stuff... I didn't get the paypal though...

    Let me check again...

    OK, here is what it got now:

    There you have it, Viagra, discount drugs, even warezing winXP (rofl, you dumb spammer, I already have it and legally), albeit no pay pal scam. Time to select "delete forever" for more of these jack**s... Anyhow, it doesn't surprive me you have gotten this though. I had sometimes in the past.

    BTW, reporting it is a good thing. Let the folks at paypal take care of him :)
