    Hi Everyone:

    Just got an email that was supposedly from Paypal (but wasnt). It told me that I had added another email address to my account and had all the links, etc that phishing emails do.
    The person/s doing this arent very good because they used the AOL icon when emailing under Paypal. /ph34r.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’ph34r.gif’ />

    Thank you very much for bringing attention to this highly sensitive problem. It is something that scares me because I'm still a greenhorn to that. <img src='style_emoticons//sad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’sad.gif’ />

    Thanks for the warning, remember a legit respectful company will never ask for sensitive information in a email. Always report it like Barb to: <img src='style_emoticons//ph34r.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’ph34r.gif’ />

    Every now and then I get an email from “Paypal” asking me to click on here are update my account details . . . . . I never do, and nothing has ever happened yet but sometimes I wonder if something IS going to happen . . . . . anyone else get these emails?

    Once there wrote that there had been suspicious activity on my account, but when I replied, “What kind of suspicious activity?” I never got a response.

    Obviously some sort of scam, but I never followed it up, just deleted. <img src='style_emoticons//mad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’mad.gif’ />

    There are plenty of those emails going around these days. They come from eBay, PayPal and pretty much every bank I have ever heard of. Some are real difficult to tell are fakes, they look pretty good. A good rule of thumb is to never click on a link from an email to any banking site or other site that has your personal info. If you think it might be legitimate, call them (and not at the number you see in the email).
