Same type of people that scam elderly people out of their life savings or steal Social Security checks from mail boxes. They should all be flogged.

Thought I would share a new scam involving PayPal's name.
I was checking the emails and saw one: "Attention: your PayPal account has been limited. Click here to see why".

mmmm........ALMOST did. Looks legit, PP logo, exact font they use. Real good planning.
Except I took my mouse and hovered it about the link.
It read ( I lost the real address, but this is close) that it went to a sales site.
NOT payPal! Nothing to do with PP at all.
Delete. Click. Gone.

I did ask PP about it, but they sadly never got back to me. They kinda dropped the ball in customer service there. But then I got it back again. I didn't send it to PP, because if they didn't answer once, they probably wouldn't answer again.

But I am waiting for the next time, if there is one. Then I will give to to PayPal.
For sure.

Edit: I found the link:
I Googled it, and all that comes up is "How to report a suspicious email to payPal"

EDIT: Yes they should Danny, with a cat o nine tails that has barbed wire instead of leather.

For a while, I was getting 2 or 3 PayPal scam emails a week. There was always something fishy about them like bad grammar or a slightly wrong address. PayPal has an email where you can forward the scams. I did that for a while and each one was acknowledged. But after a while, it got to be a pain so I just deleted them.

Now that they have your email address, you can expect many more scam PayPal emails.
