I don't like that Paypal has a fee.

A fee for what?  I have never paid a fee.  FC deposits my money and I accept the payment and transfer it to my bank account.  I have NEVER paid a fee for anything.
On my last 2 cash outs from my earning sites, I 'accepted' the money into my paypal account.  Then I transferred the cash into my bank. 

Since the update to paypal, I have had the option, on both of these cash outs to either transfer my cash to my bank with the typical one to two day waiting period before the cash hits the bank account ( it usually takes less time ).  That option is always free,

Or I had the option of paying a small fee - a percentage of the cash in the account - to have the money immediately available in the bank account. 

It's totally optional, you never have to pay a fee but it's available if you need the cash right away. 

But if you do not have the cash account you cannot hold the balance in your paypal account.  You have to go ahead and transfer it.  Mine is always less than 24 hours.

I'm not sure what PayPal is doing.  I haven't used them in years.  I have moved on although I still have a paypal account.

    PayPal now charges me a 1% fee for anything transferred to my bank account.  This was not true before.

I think I did get an email like that but I get them all the time. As long as I am getting my money, that is all I am worried about. :moneymouth:

The 1% fee should be an option.  At least that's what it is for me.  When I am transferring cash into my bank, I can either use the traditional, free method where my cash is in my account in about a day, or the other option, with a 1% fee and the cash is deposited immediately. 

I always choose the free method.  Since Paypal has made some changes, it may be a good idea to carefully read the instructions on each page before making the transfer.

Did not know it was a percent.  It has always been 25 cents.  And it is an option.  You can transfer it and it will be there the next day or you can transfer it immediately.  I have always done the free option which is the next day.  It would not surprise me for them to start charging for every transaction.  They are in it to make money not convenience us.

Ignore them and go to their website to get the real news.

You do not ignore emails from them.  That is how people end up in trouble or not knowing what is going on.  The "real news" as you say was not ON their website.  And the emails were real.  They were from PayPal.  The changes have already taken place a long time ago.

                                                                  The problem with this, is I have in the past recieved phishing emails claiming to be from PayPal, yet they are not.

I have had the same thing happen to me a long time ago.  What looked like an email from Paypal, with a very legitimate looking logo turned out to be a phishing scheme.

The only way I was able to find that out was to go to the actual Paypal website and question what I received.  I was asked by Paypal, to send them the email that I got.  They confirmed that it was bogus and they were able to put an end to that attempt to get personal information.
