Paypal Accounts Beware!

Recommended Posts

You guys watch out that have Paypal accounts. I have gotten a few phishing emails here recently that look legitimate asking me to update my account info. Paypal would never ask you to do this so don't EVER click on any links in the email. Delete them off you computer totally.

Also you will notice that in the email that you may get, the sender will never address you by your first and last name like Paypal does. If you end up clicking on these links in these fake emails and typing in your account info, that's all it takes. Your account will be hijacked, possibly draining your bank account and maxing out your credit cards. I would love to get one of these low life scumbags in a locked room for five minutes. >:(

Be on the lookout!

Easiest way to correct that problem is pay for it with a money order and then you don't have to worry about it. If they can't take a money order then oh well I don't need it. It's stupid not to take one it's money just the same as paypal just takes a day or two. Postal money orders are the best if someone messes with them they get to deal with the government.   They can keep  pay pal.

JimZee: THANKS for the warning!! I've actually seen/gotten some of those phishing emails in the past and just delete them immediately and notify PayPal Security with the info. It's nearly impossible for them to catch the low-life scumbags that do this sort of thing which is a real BUMMER as far as I'm concerned. Are you sure you'd need 5 minutes?? An aluminum baseball bat could probably save you 2 - 3 minutes:o)

Thanks for taking the time to inform people. Some people may not have been as aware as you.

Just fill a room up with set bear traps, then throw the scumbags in from a second story window....save even more time.. ::)

I've gotten a few of them.....I actually called the "real ebay" people and they said it's hard to stop these guys.Some reason they can't be traced.

I report every single email i get from those so called "ebay" accountants.

I got a few of these a couple years ago.  Someone actually hacked into my paypal account.  It was from overseas, Spain I believe.  I shut it down immediately.  Like KYbass said, a mo is the way to go.  Not too convenient, but safe.

I got one of these awhile back and called paypal also.  The best thing to do if you have any doubts delete the emails and contact the companies.  Thanks for the heads-up that these emails are happening again.
