Hi I thought I'd post here so a Mod might post this up as a caution to other Monkeys - because I know a ton of us use Paypal to buy and sell bike parts and such. I got an email on Sunday that went like this: Dear ***************, We recently reviewed your account, and suspect that your PayPal account may have been accessed by an unauthorized third party. Protecting the security of your account and of the PayPal network is our primary concern. Therefore, as a preventative measure, we have temporarily limited access to sensitive PayPal account features. For more information about how to protect your account, please visit PayPal's Security Center, accessible via the "Security Center" link located at the bottom of each page of the PayPal website. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and appreciate your assistance in helping us maintain the integrity of the entire PayPal system. Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter. Sincerely, The PayPal Team Please do not reply to this e-mail. Mail sent to this address cannot be answered. For assistance, log in to your PayPal account and choose the "Help" link in the header of any page. PayPal Email ID PP198 PayPal Email ID PP316 Well I questioned it at first, so I tried to access PayPal via the web and was unable to get into my account. So my next step was to respond to this email - it took me to a site that looked exactly like Paypal and asked me to re-enter my sign up information and account info. I did so and then I was sent over to my paypal account and I figured, yeah it was legit. Turns out it wasn't - found out the hard way last night when some focker used my account to spend over $700 of my fuggin money fraudulently! So my night last night and my morning today have been spent alerting my Bank and PayPal (who confirmed the email as fraudulent and not from them). So for the time being I'm out over $700 until this gets settled. I hope they catch the fockers and I somehow get a chance to testify to prosecute their asses. Just wanted to through this out there as an alert. Sorry for the length.
