New email scam just came into my inbox. Supposedly it’s from PayPal.

Another day, another scam. These scummy con artists just keep on with their tactics to rip us off. I don't use my PayPal account and I have probably never updated the credit card associated with the account. I'll be checking into this later. E71A66E4-DAA7-47F1-BBD7-2DEBF4C7A4C1.jpeg

I got the same email about six months ago or so.  I remember I called PayPal and they told me to disregard it - it was a scam.

@tiny 2 @I always take a screenshot before deletion. I usually go to a company's site to see how I should let the company know about the phishing email and then I forward the copy to them as per their instructions. I just did this with this email. Then I delete.

I just received one like it from Chase saying that a third party had access to my account.

I called Chase just in case because I made a large purchase this morning and I didn't want it to get cancelled.  Chase said that they don't say Dear Customer, it will have your proper name on it.  And they always refer to the CC card #.  Sure did look official tho.

I get those & amazon all the time.  I just delete

 

I think I only used paypal once a decade ago.  With Amazon I called and reported.  They confirmed it was not them

 

I just delete now after I put in my spam folder

I have gotten the Pay Pal scam twice this week.

 

My favorite is from "Amazon".  It starts out with "Beloved Customer"  

Who addresses their customers like that?  I laughed out loud when I read that one.
