I have no reason to doubt what you are saying, but like Judy, I am suspicious of the email itself. It isn't that the information is not accurate, rather, I am always suspicious of links provided inside an email like this not knowing where they really go. It is possible to look at the source code and perhaps determine if they are valid, but rather than spending the time doing that, I am going to simply log into Paypal and see what they recommend. That way, I know my information is going where it should be going. Whether this is from Paypal or not, they really should be more specific as to which browsers are now going to be required, and there were some other things that set off alarms for me..

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.

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.
