This morning I received an email supposedly coming from Paypal asking me to log in my account and confirm my Paypal details. Of course I did not log-in. Clicking the link in the email took me to a site that looked like Paypal, he onbly difference was the web address did not have the https://.
Anyone who uses Payal or Not , please be aware of this.
I once was obliged to use the genuine Paypal to pay for goods I'd bought online. Found out later that my transaction involved more than simply paying for the goods; I had also inadvertently opened an account with Paypal- which I did not want and which it took a lot of effort to get cancelled.
I have just tried that link and it actually leads to the genuine paypal site if you click on the headings. Since I have an A/C with them I checked and double checked and found my details. No I didn't fill in the form on the page.
