I got the same or similar email asking for a scanned copy or my recent bill, state issued ID, and SSN card. I called PayPal and come to find out changes in my state's law, Florida, has forced them to ask for such info.
How is that the same or similar as the OP? The OP had email from a scammer and went to a scammer's web site then filled out personal account info that went straight to a scammer's in-box. You had a legitimate email from PayPal that you called PayPal about on the phone and then ignored replying to with the requested documentation. Sounds unrelated to me.
I think it is the same, except the fact that Umitenco handled it properly, Oleg didn't.
