|Your email address has been garnered from wherever. That Paypal mail is a standard scam and fired out to just about any account "they" have garnered from wherever... What they're looking for is confirmation the account is valid/active; and also hoping that you will respond along the lines they ask... - i.e. confirming your Paypal details (login/password, bank account or whatever..). Once you do that they will really start to go to work; and you could find yourself being hit for all manner of costs for fraudulent account activity - using "your" Paypal details; and even your bank account being got at...|
I get them sent to an account that has no connection, association, nor has ever been registered etc. with eBay and/or Paypal...; and of course the one that is used for eBay matters... But they find their way automatically into the spam folder - as the pop-3 account recognises them for what they are.
Just ignore them and don't respond to them - for the reasons Derek has outlined.
