That mail came from paypal server, I did verify the mail headers and I
have that eCheck payment in my account too (although the entire amount
is deducted as fees, so I get nothing).

From the limited email details you gave, it looks like the message
didn't actually come from PayPal.

Did you actually receive the ten cent deposit into your account?

If I was to wager, just based upon what I see here - I'd say you
didn't.  This looks more like a fishing (aka phishing) attack.  But,
if I'm wrong in my guess - please let me know!

ps - I have an article or two regarding other phishing attacks at
