I've had a couple of emails from PayPal come through that are not legit. First thing to do is view the full headers in your email system. If the email is legit the return address and ALL the from addresses will be paypal.com servers. If you see anything different, it's probably a fake. Forward the email to PayPal, or copy the email into one of their online contact forms and ask them if it's legit. There are really good about getting back to you!Originally posted by nicklin
That's true, but what I'm asking is:
the email contained :
and that IS the log in page of paypal. what gives.
The address looks right, so I'm not sure how they did it, unless they have that address shown to you and another address under it that is used. Do a "view source" on your original email and see if there is another address in the code.
Just my 2 cents...
