    i just got one today. so be on the look out. it was a good one but not paypal.

    thay are supost to great you with your first and last name or bissness name. mine was greated to my email address. thay say that someone has tryed to charge to your credit card account and the bank told paypal about this. so thay want you to verify the info you gave them.

    sent spoof@paypal.com a copy and thay said it was bad dont do anything in there.

    just wanted to warn all of you. good day.:wink1:

    I get those all the time. Unless I see my name in the email, it gets deleted.

    I got one about a month ago saying that I had sent payment to someone for a $350 watch and had a link to click on to dispute it.It didnt have an item # or ending date so I figured it was bogus,and it turned out it was.I saw a post on Pirate where they got somebody for $1600 with that scam.

    Never click on links, You can always log into paypal normally and check the history.
