Guessing this is a scam

The email message below was received from PayPalSecure:

My Italics.

Dear customer.

We've limited access your account due to multiple unsuccessful login attempts from a foreign ip adress : Russia, IP:

During the next login process, you will be required to provide some informations that only the real owner of this account knows (billing info, phone number, payment info.)

There follows a Login tab.

Needless to say I haven't "logged in" 

The layout of the message looks highly plausible.

Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.
