I got an e-mail today from "PayPal" stating that someone from two foreign countries had tried to access my Pay Pal account and to click on a link to check it out. Only problem folks is that I don't have a Pay Pal account and never have had one. Me thinks scam.
They want you to change your pass word. If you get one of these forward it to spoof@paypal.com

If you have an account, it is my understanding that Pay Pal will use you real name in their e-mails to you. Scams will say something like dear Pay Pal User or something generic like that.

Paypal will never send you an email and ask you to login to your account to....

Any email to the contrary is a scam.

Networks say that "phishing" is up over 50%. It is becoming a real nitemare for the elderly. They get these requests in the mail.
