  • If you have a PayPal account

    Watch out for a phishing email going around big time. It looks pretty legit, too. The header starts out "IMMEDIATE ATTENTION REQUIRED", and goes on to something about service upgrades with a couple of links to click. Don't click them!!!! You can forward the email to [email protected] or delete it.

    I will not feed the troll-well, I will try.

    I got one in my email not too long ago. I just deleted it, and logged on to paypal myself. It didn't give any notices, so I just went on with my business as usual.

      Turns out it was real. I got the email from PP verifying it. They also said that was the most reported email they had ever had and won't be using all caps in the heading anymore. LOL!

        'Citi' Fraudulent Email
        by River Spirit
