This one is probably not a scam.  I was on the Paypal website last night and 
read a notice that as of June 30 you will have to be using the latest 
browser in order to access your accounts.  According to Paypal this is due 
to security updates to their system.

Hello, All,

I got this e-mail this morning, supposedly from Paypal, and I almost fel for 
it, stopped myself just in time.

I am using Google Chrome, and there is no reason to update my browser, as 
the e-mail is suggesting.  For any of you who have Paypal accounts, don’t 
open any e-mails like this.  Rather, call the company itself from an outside 
number or web site, not anything given in the e-mail, as those links or 
other information is false.

If anyone has received an e-mail like the one below, forward it to 
spoof at paypal.com.

Hope this saves someone any heartache of a compromised account.
