Scam/Fake Paypal Email?

  TicTacToc 12:53 17 Jun 2006

I received this e-mail yesterday:

There is nothing in my Paypal account about it. I haven't to my knowledge bought or done anything to do with this.


Thanks for any advice.

If not - ignore it.

Cannot quite read the note, due to smallness of print. What I can make out is the USD monetary value. It's a scam, unless you trade and live in America perhaps.

Get that type of thing on a weekly basis, bin it.

oops, the print is rather small - I always have that problem - is there any way to make it bigger in Photobucket?

I'm not sure what my Paypal handle is, but it is addressed to my Paypal email address correctly.

I am in the UK . . but payments to the US would be in USD anyway, so how does that make it a scam necessarily. I've certainly paid for stuff in USD before.

Your e-mail address is easy. Just one of many sent.

Only you and Paypal know to collate your Handle with that address. Without that correlation it has to be a Scam.

Hover your mouse cursor over the link, I bet it doesn't point to PayPal ;-)

You haven't joined Astalavista recently have you? It might be worth checking your paypal account to see if this has been deducted. Astalavista is a site I visit and it is kosher.

No I haven't Gandalf as far as I know.
