.. Not photography related subject, just courious

Several weeks ago I attempted a purchase from a company that would only accept PayPal. I clicked on the “Pay with PayPal” field, and what came up was Japanese (?) script. Today I received an email from PayPal, evidently as a follow up .. I never made the purchase .. the email was also in what appears to me as Japanese.

With the many discussions here concerning PayPal .. I was wondering if anyone else has had this experience .. ?
This transaction would have been inside the continental USA.

Below is the email I received today .. I couldn’t begin to respond if I wanted ..

I use PayPal a lot. I haven't received any email like that. What does your PayPal account say about your recent transactions ? (i.e. log into PayPal, and check) I would not trust the email, and I would not reply to it.

Have you asked the seller to send you a PayPal invoice? That I would trust, if it came through the normal process.

I haven’t had a PayPal account for several years now. PayPal let me create a “guest account” which I was trying to use. I filled out the required information tying the sale to my Visa account and entered it .. the resulting next step "field" was in Japanese, so I never completed the transaction .. (I tried two more times). I found another vendor that took my credit card.

A month or so before, I used the PayPal “guest account” to purchase an item from a shop in Manchester, UK tied to my Visa account and it allowed me to pay in local currency (UK).

I had no problems and the transaction appeared on my Visa statement.

Just put this up as a possible point of interest .. however, I have not had an account with PayPal for several years so the interest doesn't run deep enough for direct inquiry .. kind of like calling an insurance company and getting an agent on the line ..

@ AndrewJ .. Thank you.
I guess the account doesn't expire, but the card I used is good into 2018 .. Message makes some sense now .. but why Japanese .. ?

How 'bout this one. This is a banner ad that appeared just now when signing into Fred's" .. Must be a Google thing .. The first message was PayPal related and was not at Fred's .. it was PayPal on Reverb.com. I am using Google Chrome for both though ..

... The Banner Ad ...
