Was it an e-mail or letter?.If its an e-mail,I receive similar e-mails quite regularly.
They usually ask you to click a link and enter you e-mail address and password. Sometimes your CC details.I would forward the e-mail to PayPal and ask them to authenticate the e-mail.I have done this numeroue times.
You could also report this to your CC company,see what they say.
No it`s a letter posted from PayPal with a Los Angeles postcode. I`ve already stopped CC card as we noticed two transactions on our last statement, the money has been reinstated to my CC account. Have rang the phone number on the letter and they asked me to send an e-mail or letter to confirm that I haven`t set up the account. I was wondering if I should do anything else.
I belive the letter is from PayPal. In it they tell how to validate the account which confirms our address for mail.it also includes UK address for PayPal and the phone number which checks out. Have tried the PayPal website but got bogged down with the choices for reporting as nothing matches my problem
Like you I'm wary about supplying my card details on-line.Currently PayPal are the only company who have my information.
I would only supply my info to reputable companies.
If I were you,now your card has been stopped,let PayPal do their investigation.Wait and see what their finding are.It could take months,but hopefully the person who used your details will be made accoutable.
iqs Yes it looks like I`ll have to do that. Been back on their website but unable to find an option to click on that covers my problem. The address in the letter is their registered address in UK so don`t know if a letter will get to the someone who can deal with it.
