I have a hard time deciding about some PayPal emails also. I am
not a regular user of PayPal, but had to sign up in order to use my
credit card so I do get legitimate ones occasionally. I generally
ignore them since I am not interested. If I need to use them
again, the rules or whatever will probably have been changed and I
can find out then. I did have one that said that my account had
been repeatedly attempted access and that if it wasn't me, to do
something. It sure looked legitimate (in the headers and message
source), but at the time, I didn't have the time to look up
passwords, etc. and go to the site and see what was going on.
Probably not a good idea to procrastinate.
I don't usually report the ones I am unsure of, though I follow the
reasoning that the OP had. Legitimate sites that are often spoofed
ought to insure that when one gets a legitimate email from them,
that there is no question. Reporting it shows that, at least, one
person was confused. While I don't think the spoof submission
would be answered, IMHO, the spamcop report ought to have been if
it was legitimate.
