paypal update

  conrail 09:54 30 Nov 2004

I have received an email from PayPal [email protected]>
requesting I update my details, when loging on to the link it asks me to complete all details again to prevent fraud, I would have though that if it is a legit site my details would be available to just update as neccessary, anybody any ideas on whether it is legit or not? thanks

NEVER follow links given in emails purporting to be requests for details updates. Visit the website by your usual method and check.

I would also let paypal know. I have just visited my A/C on the paypal site and no update of details was asked for. Paypal don't ask for this info via e mail.

[email protected] There are a lot going about. One I receive regulrly informs you that they have deducted $175 from your account, and gives a link to view the transaction details. I forwarded it to paypal and they informed me the link leads to a virus.

Never take any notice, and NEVER click the links!
