PostSubject: PayPal email   Thu May 05, 2011 11:25 am

Has anyone got ones of these emails yet? Funny thing is, when I logged in, there wasnt anything showing any transaction shown for that number or for a credit card charge. Nor has my account been limited. And why would a message from Paypal go in the spam folder? No I didnt try logging in from that email either.

As far as I know, all legitimate PayPal communications include your actual name, not just "PayPal user".

Thats what I thought. This is like the second one I got in the last year. All other emails from them go straight to the mailbox and not the spam folder. Plus I havent used a CC in over a year either, so I know it wasnt from that. Plus its kinda hard to have a CC transaction when most are close to max anyway. lol!

Sounds like a scam Chris!

Like Stealthboy says whenever i get an email from paypal it always says "Dear my name".

Can you not report it to paypal?

I have one of these every month.
Report it to Paypal & Delete it. Ignore its content.

I already got rid of it, next time I get one I'll get in touch with paypal about it. I got one from Ebay like that one time also and reported it and they were helpful with it also, but that was 2 years ago.
