To my knowledge, I do not nor ever have had a paypal account.  I have also never purchased anything on ebay.  Over the past 6 months, I have been getting increasingly  more and more fraudulent e-mails telling me they are from ebay and that my account has been breached.  Inthe past month or so, I have also begun getting repeated e-mails from paypal with the following text:
