I received an emailed invoice from PayPal saying I spent $529.98. They gave an invoice number of JG9mmfotzi, as well as an order number, ifjejekgk-22529. The item was for Cannon Toner 5 pack. I do not have a PayPal account. The wording seemed off and there were also spelling errors in the email.

Called the phone number listed and talked to a “Mike Wilson.” Mike was told that our PayPal account had not be used/opened for months. In order to clear the charge he asked for access to our computer.

He further offered his direct phone number: 1-808-844 8527. In the course of getting the erroneous Pay Pal charge cleared, he accessed our bank account to reflect a “refund” to our account and the account showed a deposit of $7000 rather than $700. Mike then asked for a refund from the $7000 to Bank of [email protected] wire transfer (international wire). This would remove the $7000 and refund it to the account (PayPal?) Mike provided. He actually wanted us to go to a local Target store and do the wire transfer from there. Before Mike was finished and cut off he had made another $7000 transfer for a total of $14,000. After our contact with our bank Mike was called and told --our bank does not do international wire transfers, --all you did was to transfer funds within my bank account and asked me to send you money—we are reporting to the police. Mike’s response was to say it doesn’t matter whether you shut your computer off or your bank sets up new accounts we have already cleared out your bank account.

Received a certified letter from what appears to be Paypal. The letter states I owe 4,41.31 The amount on the letter was not added correctly. This seems to me a credit card statement poorly executed.

I received a notice on my computer from PayPal. I clicked on the email. First of all I do not have a PayPal account. I questioned it immediately. Someone used my name and ordered $530 worth of coins. They sent me a receipt. Altcoincoin OPF I called PayPal from the phone number on the email 877-598-4756. I could not understand them. He said do what I tell you to do. Go online and fill out this paperwork. I said I am not giving any information. I want this recognized as something illegal. The email mentioned Elyria OH 44035. I do not live in Elyria. The email a also had an order number EB01FAD048. I told the man this sounded strange and I would call the Better Business Bureau. The daughter warns me about scams all the time.

This company is using a version of the paypal logo, but it is not PayPal. They are trying to get my information on an xBox that I didn't order. They try to draw you in by offering seller protection.

Type of a scam Identity Theft

My Paypal acct was hijacked 2 years ago, after I placed an online order on 7/21/20 for 2 "motorized floats", I received 2 "blow-up" pool floats, for which I paid $144.98. After numerous emails & months of Pure Frustration, I realized the only thing I acquired from that transaction...was a DAMN GOOD LESSON! I tried to close my Paypal acct but could not even log into it to close it, nor could I ever get Any One on the phone to speak to about I just vowed not to use Paypal again.

Then a friend sent $350.00 for Rodeo tickets to me via PP, not knowing I had issues with them, I never could log in to collect that money?

Most recently, today on 9/20/22, I received an "Invoice" in my gmail inbox, seemingly sent from: [email protected] stating "Bitcoin Exchange sent you an invoice for $499.99 USD, Due on receipt, & that I had successfully made a transaction for my Bitcoin (BTC) Using Paypal" ??? There is a phone number listed 888-524-3720 which I called & the scammer on the other end confirmed there were actually (3) charges & he read these to me outloud: (I had no knowledge of the 1st two until he read them?)

9/16/22 - $39.83 for candy

9/16/22 - $439.99 for gift card

9/19/22 - $799.99 for iPhone 11

When he asked me to put him on speaker & go to my apps so I could "connect to his server" so HE could delete those bogus purchases & help me close my acct, I of course laughed into the phone & declined, he kept insisting that this was "the procedure"...after a few, I told him to stick his server where the sun don't shine & disconnected the call.

Now all I want to achieve is to CLOSE MY PAYPAL ACCT but again, there's No Way to do that?! They instruct you to "log in" to deactivate your acct....(but what if your acct has been hacked? how are you supposed to log in?) Ugggggh! I created a "dummy acct" to try to circumvent this ridiculous process, but to no avail. PLEASE HELP if you can!

Thank You,

Kelly O'Reilley

I received an email from Paypal saying we owe $500 US for a Target egift card on 9.8.22. It says please do not reply. If you did not make the transaction to call 888-224-7352. I called and spoke to a man with an accent. I told him we didn't make the purchase. He said I was liable for the purchase. I said it's a scam. He began rambling, so I hung up.

An invoice was sent to my email, I opened and read the invoice. It said it was from PayPal and that I owed $370 for a purchase to McAfee Security for a home computer. I did not make such a purchase, so I called the 1800 number listed on the invoice. The person there said they would refund the money to me, all I had to do was download an app. I began to start the process, and became nervous once the app told me to allow access to my phone to the people on the other line. I stopped what I was doing and deleted the app and hung up the phone. I called the real PayPal number and forwarded the email to their fraud department. I have changed all of my passwords, but am hoping they did not get any information off of my phone.
