I saw a scam in my email yesterday. When I clicked on the email it did not make sense. It appeared to be from PayPal. It stated, we have received and confirmed your order. We thank you for choosing us as your favorite payment processor. Your order will deliver on February 13th. Call phone number 866-545-5108 if you have further questions. I don't use PyPal. I called the number. The person that answered said it was PayPal. I told them I did not order anything. I was directed to go to a new window and eliminate. They said $466.68 was collected in a bank account. They did not ask for account number. Every time I said I did not know any thing they told me not to worry. I did not give any personal information or pay money. They already had my email.

I recieved the attached email and called the number they gave to me. I spoke with foreigners that I could barely understand. They directed me to go to and to download their website. When that failed, they asked me to go back to my email. When I told them I no longer had a Paypal account and that I felt they were a SCAM, he reasssured me that because I was allowed onto the website via Google Chrome, they were a legitimate account. When I continued with further questions, he spoke in another language to someone else and abruptly hung up on me. I have listed the phone number for you. This has to be stopped!!!!!

Some criminal element living around my apartment area fraudulently used both my personal email to process a fake PayPal order by copying and pasting something from some trash emails she / he stole from someone else's trying to extort mone from me. That crook went so far as to set up a fraudulent email on Google by using my name and stringing it together. This is both a felonious identity theft and an attempt at extortion. They all think this is a game and that I will be stupid enough to call those crooked cops that are responsible for harassing me both at this apartment and at my home and file yet another stupid identity theft as well as criminal case only to be lied to and told its a "civil" matter. They let these people setup these illegal fake companies and fake email accounts with anonymity and think I will was time chasing it down for an order that does not exist for me. They keep trying to extort money from me using all kinds of tactics just because these criminals came back into the area and have relatives that refuse to stop harassing and who refuse to get a job like any other person. No one told them to get pregnant and to drop out of school and think they'll get a free ride off of other people or use up their I'll gotten inheritance and then think they can gang up on someone like trying to extort and take advantage of me sitting around trying to come up with get rich schemes like that insurance scam she / he ran when that relative died!

This phone number is insisting they are through PayPal and sent me an invoice for a purchase of $511 when I don’t even have a PayPal account. I opened the email not knowing what it was and clicked on the phone number. I hope it was not their way of opening my phone because when I questioned them as to the last four digits of the supposed account number they hung up on me

I received an email with my full name and street address listed stating I had made a purchase using my PayPal account and it was in process to be shipped. There was a note stating the following:

"Note: if the order is placed without your authorization on have any question, you can call our 24/7 helpline number given bilow."

There was obviously miss spellings in the email. Not to mention I haven't used a Paypal account in 10+ years. I just dont want anyone to fall for this because it took me a minute to catch that it was a scam because they listed my full name and complete correct street address. I second guessed it, but once I really looked at it thoroughly I could see it was not valid.
