Paypal scam email
So how many of you received the fake Paypal email.... I did.
I received it 3 times or so. On the third time, I did log on and almost completed the information but had a weird feeling. I was wondering why Paypal was requesting this info, when they already had it, and threatening to suspend my account when they had not done so to date? Three warnings and no suspended account. I looked up at the address bar and noticed that it did not say paypal. So I cancelled out. Later I saw the notification that this site was down due to this scam. Wow, that was close. As a precaution I did go to my Paypal account (the real one) and changed my password. No problem... thank goodness.
Did anyone get hit? If so, does Paypal assist in any way?
