Am I the only one getting hammered with PayPal spoofs lately?
I swear, I think I have gotten 2 or 3 a day for the last week. This phishing has got to stop!

I've gotten a ton of them in the last few months.

Me too and also Chase Bank wants me to verify my account and social security numbers and there's been another round of Nigerian investors wanting me to help them out by letting them give me a lot of money.

I've had PayPal twice and amazon.com once. I think I might have actually been caught on the amazon.com because it came right after I had submitted an order. I don't know if they got anything. Amazon.com contacted me the 2 days later. I hate this kind of shit.

I've gotten about 5 in the last week. Sent them to Paypal. They told me "Yes they are frauds".
Well Duh!I knew that just from the spelling errors! lol!
Are your emails all saying the same? All mine say
"Your Account is about to be suspended?" etc.

Mine may say that (I don't really read them), but usually it's that someone else has been added to my PayPal account. But when I check, no one else is there, and there has been no activity.

I always go to PayPal directly (not through the link) just to make sure. Never have had a problem yet.
