The insidious thing if my suspicion is correct, is that they are using a clever ploy-offering me a chance to upgrade my info, in order to avoid "suspending" my account, and obviously nobody wants to have her/his paypal account suspended. I doubt the real paypal would need me to update, as nothing is out of date, and I've even made a recent purchase.
