#98QBKiller Posted February 20, 2006 Share Posted February 20, 2006 Just a warning to everyone here. I just received a suspicious e-mail that looked like a paypal receipt. I looked at the e-mail and it said that I had purchased and item for $33 and some change and that this was my receipt. I called paypal immediately and they told me not to click any links in the message and to forward it to email@example.com, and also to log in to paypal and change my password. I did all of this and I think that everything's fine now. They told me that if I ever receive an e-mail that claims I've purchased something that I know I haven't, to follow all of the steps above. And to make sure that I DO NOT CLICK ANY LINKS IN THE E-MAIL. They said that a sure-fire way to tell if it's fake or not is if the e-mail uses your first and last name in the salutation. PayPal will always refer to you using your first and last name. The e-mail I received referred to me using my e-mail address. Just letting everyone know. Be careful!
