Oh My gosh! Ladies and gent, today I was checking my mom's email, and to my surprised there was an email from paypal. This got my eye, since we haven't bought anything from Ebay, or used our paypal account since January. So I opened the mail, and it said something along the lines of thank you for your paypent to this company, for the amount of $400.00! I almost fainted. I was shocked, but soooo mad. However all this time the mail was weird looking, not that regualr mail you get when you use your account. So there was this link that said if you want to dispute this charge, clicked here, so I did. All this time you know the URL, it said something other than paypal. Next I noticed they wanted me to put my mom's info, and use her debit card, and give her atm pin number! That's when I thoght something was wrong. I just wrote to paypla, and checked the credit card balances, and they are ok. You know on the paypal history, it shows no new transactions. So now I am scared, you guys. Sorry this is so long, and borring, I just had to vent! I am scared, because my mom previously faced an identity theft like 2 years ago, so we are still a little traumatized. I keep telling myself everything will be ok. What other actions do you guys think I should take?
