PayPal Security Concern

I first signed up with PayPal over a year ago, and just left the account dormant - I didn't bother it, and it didn't bother me. Over the last week I bought and sold a couple of items on Ebay, which involved me upgrading to a 'Premier' account. Two minutes after I upgraded I received my first bit of PayPal related spam, trying to trick me into entering my details on a spoof site.

The email address that I signed up to PayPal with, and received the spam to, I rarely use and receives no spam - I have a few disposable ones that I generally use. The only people that have this one are the two people I bought from and sold to and PayPal. So either one of them added me to some kind of mailing list, or my details were somehow 'leaked' from PayPal. Coincidence? It could be, but a very big one.
