Scam. 

PayPal always addresses you by first name when emailing you.

I know, I know. Them begging to "Simply open it" is telling.
If you click reply, you can see the email address that it was sent form, definitely not PP.

They will also always tell you to log on top your account by going to Paypal.com
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

Dear         ,
We're writing to let you know that we removed the listing you won or were bidding on, and the item is no longer available:
 261401346565 - Samsung Galaxy S 4 GT-I9500 - 16GB - White Frost (Unlocked) Smartphone
261401346605 - New Samsung Galaxy S4 GT-I9500 3G HSDPA (FACTORY UNLOCKED) 16GB Brown/Gold Phone


 We do our best to make sure listings that may not comply with our policies don't appear on eBay, but with millions of items listed every day, occasionally one may appear on our site.   

 The most common reasons we remove listings are:
 -- The item isn't allowed on eBay or can only be listed under certain conditions.
 -- The listing or item may have violated the intellectual property rights of others.

 What to do now:

 If you won the item and haven't paid yet:
 -- This transaction is now canceled. You don't need to pay for the item.
 -- If the seller offers the item outside eBay, don't accept the offer. Transactions completed off eBay are not protected by our Feedback system or Buyer Protection programs. For more information on transactions outside of eBay see:
http://pages.ebay.com/help/buy/transactions-outside-eBay.html 

 If you won the item and already paid:
--  If you already received your item and you're satisfied, please disregard this notice.
 -- If you haven't received the item, or if the item is significantly not as described, your purchase price plus original shipping may be covered by eBay Buyer Protection:
http://pages.ebay.com/help/buy/resolving-problems.html
 -- If you paid by a method other than PayPal, we recommend you try to stop payment. Please contact your payment provider directly.

 We're sorry for the inconvenience. eBay still has lots of other great deals. Just go to http://www.ebay.com to shop. We hope to see you soon.

Thanks,

 eBay

 Please don't reply to this message. It was sent from an address that doesn't accept incoming email.

Dear Achas,

We are writing to provide you advance notice that the price of your Prime membership will be increasing in 2015. Your 2014 annual renewal will remain at the original price of $79. On March 17, 2015, your membership will renew at $99/year.

Even as fuel and transportation costs have increased, the price of Prime has remained the same for nine years. Since 2005, the number of items eligible for unlimited free Two-Day Shipping has grown from one million to over 20 million. We also added unlimited access to over 40,000 movies and TV episodes with Prime Instant Video and a selection of over 500,000 books to borrow from the Kindle Owners' Lending Library.

Sincerely,

The Amazon Prime Team

Hi Mesh

Our system has flagged your account indicating you’ve taken advantage of the Uber referral program to earn Uber credit inappropriately. You will no longer earn credit from invite codes associated with these accounts, and we’ve removed the credit earned previously from the primary account associated with this invite code.

For more information regarding our referral program and referral policy, see here: http://support.uber.com/entries/22407372-Credit-for-Referring-Friends

Best,
Randy

My reply:

Hi Randy,

Yep, thats right, I abused the system. And as with all of these stick - you win some and lose some.
Was fun doing it, really enjoyed the fun more than the free money.

Btw, you guys made a wonderful app - love it.

Don't hesitate to contact me should you have any questions or just looking someone to hang out with.

Cheers
Love me or hate me. I still love you.
