Received email from "PayPal" advising me that $400.78US order for US [email protected] 877-903-0072 has made. The email advises that the email notice is not a charge, that my account will be charged when the merchant processes my payment. Funds will be transferred when the merchant processes my payment, that any money in my PayPal account at that time will be used before any other payment source. If the payment was not authorized by me, I was asked to login at the link provided to cancel payment in order to get a full refund. to see the full transaction details, I am asked to log into my PayPal account. Payment was supposedly sent to [email protected] Email advised that I should contact Dispute Centre at indicated email.

Email was sent to my account that I have not used for almost a year. I checked into the account yesterday (June 1, 2018) and saw this email dated Feb 28, 2018. I have not noticed any payment of this amount made against my bank account. Although I have a PayPal account, opened years ago, I have not used PayPal for years.

PayPal Freeprints.... The payment was supposedly sent to [email protected] I have not used Paypal in a very long time and I have not given them my current credit card expiry date. I telephoned Paypal and they confirmed there has been no transaction on my account. They asked me to forward the email to [email protected] and then to delete it. I sent it and I received a notice that it was blocked.

Type of a scam Phishing

Was emailed the attached copy of a PayPal order/invoice. I do not subscribe to PayPal! Nor did I order these "seeds". Am I liable for this invoice? I stupidly logged in to let them know that I did not authorize this order but as soon as questions appeared I did not fill in any personal information realizing this was a scam. What do I do now? There is another photo shot which is a continuation of the one below, but only one photo is able to appear in the space provided.

This number has been calling my cell phone (which is registered on the Do Not Disturb list) four times a day. When I finally answered, it was an automated voice telling me that I have a balance on my PayPal account and to press one to be connected to a staff member who can help me pay my balance. I hung up without pressing one.

Type of a scam Fake Invoice/Supplier Bill

The scammer posed as a girl interested in buying my iTunes gift card. He created an email posing as someone from PayPal that looked incredibly official. He sent multiple emails, the first being one saying that I had funds pending and the service member would be the middleman for the transaction. I sent the gift card’s info through the email to the fake PayPal helper and waited for the funds to be approved. Needless to say they were not approved

Received email saying my PayPal account was compromised from an IP address in Auckland, NZ. It had a link to a place other than paypal that I did not click on. The email address did not come from paypal, either. I reported as a scam to my email provider.

Type of a scam Fake Invoice/Supplier Bill

It looked like an authentic email from PayPal advising I'd made a purchase for a product I didn't buy and to a company never heard of. My reaction was to find a link in the email to let PayPal know it was not an authorized purchase and that it might be a scam. I was also suspicious that the PayPal email address showed "[email protected]". There was a link. However, I decided to first check the internet and typed "paypal scams" to see if there were similar scenarios as mine (which there were) and so learned not to click on any links within a suspicious email. Here is a partial copy of the email text I received:

"You sent a payment of $105.00 CAD to River Valley Alliance

Type of a scam Phishing

Received a very legit-looking email from "PayPal" authorizing a supposed payment of $59.88 to "Cleverbridge, Inc." for a "MacKeeper Premium". I immediately suspected a scam, so I logged into the actual PayPal site from another window to verify that indeed no such payment had been made. After confirming no security breech, I decided to investigate and take the scam bait. Upon more careful examination of the email content, there are a few grammatical and typographical errors in the text and fine print. The "Cancel Order" link in email goes to, which looks like the official PayPal login page. Out of curiousity, I "logged in" with a fake address and fake "yeah, right" password, which then took me to another official-looking "PayPal" page that said there was suspicious activity on my account and needed to verify that it was me logging in from my device. There was a button to click "continue", but, at this point, I was too chicken to go any further since the site could already tell my location from my device. Hopefully, that didn't damage my device, although I'm fairly confident the scammers are just phishing rather than trying to get me to download malware. Even so, I used an Apple device, which is less susceptible to such.

Type of a scam Identity Theft

I received and email stating, "Unusual actively in your PayPal account".

The email read that there unusual activity on my account and that I should login now *through a link provided* that read, Login *here*. I do not have a PayPal acct...

I think they wanted to hack my login as I went to their encrypted page as I went to the PayPal page and then they would have my login or have total access to the account...which I don't have so I do worry about the people who have accounts and wouldn't think about this and go into their link...and be scammed.

I received an email on Nov 5th saying my account was limited and I needed to update my info. So I thought it was a legitimate email from PayPal. Then on Nov7th I noticed $409.90 had been taken out of my account saying PAYPAL. MRPOPULARNO. CAUS. I had not purchased anything online in months. This sounds like the same type scam as I read is being done with AMAZON. They are sending emails that look like a legitimate company. Luckily, my bank worked with me and I am getting my money back

I received this email and immediately tried to contact both PayPal and Wish. Wish was not open because it was the weekend and two attempts trying to call PayPal said that their number was experiencing technical difficulties. I stupidly logged into the email thinking it was PayPal and entered my personal information. Finally was able to contact PayPal a few hours later and was told this was a fraud. Immediately cancelled all of my accounts and contacted my local authorities to see what else I could do.
