Twitch Interactive just sent me money?

I got an email from Paypal stating Twitch Interactive had sent me USD36.66. I thought it must be a scam because I've never heard of Twitch Interactive. I logged into my Paypal account, not via the link they sent of course, and sure enough $36.66 was deposited to my account just today. I have no idea what Twitch Interactive is and no idea why they sent me money. Should I be concerned?

Do you play games? Do you stream them on https://www.twitch.tv/ ?
Alternatively, some sucker has a similar email address and accidentally put your PayPal email as their payout preference.

Me? I can't play any games to save my life! LOL I asked my son who used to stream a game here and there but he didn't do much this year so he didn't think it was him.

Or it's a phish to get you to type in some paypal credentials (similar to the real Amazon order, that you did not order, shipped to your door scam.)

Sounds like someone typed the wrong email. I think you're right on that one.
