Dude, just to be safe I'd give them all your credit card numbers. And checking and savings accounts for extra security.

I got a message like that from paypal before asking for my username and password, as well as email account name and password because they were lost during the one of the shut downs for site maintenance. I knew it was bogus right away when they asked for the email info but then I looked at the address bar and it was from someone @paypa1.com. Always double check the address bars! They used all the paypal and credit card logos in their email, it totally looked legit but I wasn't falling for the scam.

paypal will also only address you by the name on your account: Dear So'n'So
