I have a Gmail and a live mail so I forward my live mails to Gmail.
I don't remember signing up for PayPal using live mail. I work for a signer and I sell her songs online using PayPal so these days I'm receiving these mails (sent to live mail, forwarded to Gmail)

I have a feeling that this email is all about phishing, but I want to ask you first before marking it as spam
I entered my live mail, in the forgot password form so that if I have an account I'll receive a forgot password email, it says
We couldn't find your email address. Please try again or select I don't know what email address I used.
So the email does not exist, I don't have an a PayPal account with my live mail. Furthermore check this
On Oct 16, 2011 you received $13.00 USD from firstname.lastname@example.org
A normal human does not put 2
__ in the email right? A human uses 1
So what do you say should I create a PayPal account with my live mail or what
