There may or may not be a cause-and-effect relationship there. After
all, phishing is an attempt to get account info from someone -- if
you're already a PayPal customer and PayPal were doing the phishing,
they'd just be working overtime to get info they already have.
You could test this theory by using a complex semi-random email address
that's not published anywhere else.
But I suspect such a test will turn out negative. Not that I have
enough experience with PayPal to vouch for them, but simply that PayPal
phishing their own customers for info just doesn't make sense.
