OK folks here's a headsup fer yall. I just got a phony paypal email sayin my account was limited an it gave a case number an looked real good. Before I did anything with that I checked my credit card account an there ain't nothin wrong there.

Checked with paypal an no problem there. Sent them a copy a the email an then deleted it per there instructions.

Paypal will send you emails but it will have yer name as stated on yer account included in it. If anything ya get from paypal doesn't it's bogus. Forward anything like that to: spoof@paypal.com.

Keep yer eyes peeled folks, oh yeah, I'm changin my password there again!

Re: Warning!/Paypal

I've been getting emails from paypal for the past few weeks. I don't even open them, just delete. Thats the kind of crap that can bring viruses and stuff to your computer!
I hope this isn't negative!
