Look at the "i" in the web address. They spelled "PaiyPal" it is an obvious scam. That email wasn't even from PayPal.

Report it.

Which is why I dont have a paypal thing an ebay thing or any other thing with paying over the internet or mail. Pay in person or from a reputable company such as AES. I have never bought anything over the internet form a second party. In other words used stuff. If its new from AES then yes otherwise dont bother asking me to buy anything.
