In 2016 I bought hardware codecs for my rPi, today I received 13 emails purportedly from sent to my paypal email account containing my (correct) serial number. I'm worried that the site has been compromised and would be glad to hear about a system glitch instead, has this happened to anyone else?

I have not used my rPi for some months (not sure I should admit that here!) but I am certain I have not done anything to trigger these mails in terms of accessing the website.

Any advice would be helpful; I have sent a message on the main website page but I am not sure how to properly raise this concern.
