BEWARE: phishing emails from paypal?

  1. Hi girls,

    I keep getting these in my email, purportedly from paypal. please be wary of these kinds of emails. i just reported this to paypal.:tdown: this is ridiculous! to think anyone from Paypay would use a yahoo email account for official purposes...


    Email was sent from "PayPal Security Center <>" with the subject heading "PayPal Accounts Management!"

  2. Yea... I responded to one of those once.. luckily, my bf was 5 feet away, he saw what I was doing and told me to change my PW immediately.

    Please note, Paypal will ALWAYS start an email to you with Dear "first name" "last name" ... it will never say Dear Valued member, etc etc. :smile:
  3. Yup, if you get those emails, forward them to to report them.
  4. yeah i got several of those last week and posted about it. just forward them to that email someone else posted.
  5. Those phishers are getting better at being evil. I had a couple with my name on them. Even then..don't click the link. eBay and Pay Pal will never have you do that.
  6. I received them and I always report them.
  7. I think I got today a phishing email from Paypal. After you klick on the Link, to LogIn they want your credit card number and so on. I reported it. The Mail came from this Mail Adress:
