This is NOT from Paypal.... you can tell because it doesn't start with a personal salutation, the address it was sent to was in the form of twitter @ *domain_name* The format is untidy and the senders' email address is from South Africa. It is a phishing attemp for you to reveal your paypal detail to a scammer! Please pass this information around to your friends, it is a scam and is a serious security threat to your paypal account.

NOT from Apple - Unauthorised Appstore Purchase

This looks like a genuine Apple security warning however it will take you to a phishing site if you click on the link.
Only log into your online accounts by typing their address yourself, never click on links in emails, a good 'fake' is getting harder to spot as the phishers get better at copying official pages and emails.

Good day,

Your AppleID was recently used to purchase "Lane Splitter" from the iTunes Store on a Personal Computer or device that had not earlier been connected with your AppleID.

This action was observed from the following IP: (Volgograd, Russia).

If you are the one who made this operation, you can disregard this warning. It was sent to you only to alert you if you did not make the operation by yourself.

If you did not make this action, we recommend that you urgently verify your AppleID: 
In any case, your financial details are in safe on Apple security servers. Remember, that Apple will never send you a request to give your financial information by e-mail or via telephone.

Best regards,
Apple Inc.
