  • New Ebay paypal scam?

    I keep getting messages that someone is trying to access my paypal account and they look like they come from Paypal but when I put my cursor onto them before I click, the address that comes up in the search window is not for paypal but for some place with a kr in its address. Looks like a scam to me? Anyone else get the same email?

    Don't answer any e-mail supposedly from e-bay or paypal but go to your e-bay account for messages that they may have to ask you but no e-mails anymore.

          you can forward the emails to
          [email protected]
          they will tell you if it was from them but it also gives them a little better way of catching the people doing that
          ones you get that say they are from ebay can be forwarded to

            Yes, it's a scam, but no, it's not new. I get loads of these, though conveniently enough always to e-mail accounts for which I've never set up a paypal account, so it's obvious right off that they're bogus.

            The highlighted text which shows in a browser link has nothing at all to do with where the link actually goes. But scammers put what looks like a ligit link address in there, and people who don't understand HTML think that the link is therefore legit.
