Be careful, Someone is trying to get our palpay accounts passwords. Today I received a email which said that my paypal accout was login in another location and my they thought my account had be hijacked. So they asked me click a link to change my password. But I noticed that this email is coming from service@paypall.com. Note, the paypal address is www.paypal.com. "paypall" and "paypal" are very similar. Don't click links in the email to login your "paypal" account. When you do it, you password will be record by the sites owner, and then your account will be really in danger. So pay attention, do not be cheat. Good luck to you!

i've gotten quite a few emails like that before. i've gotten some that say my payment went through and it was for a $500 watch. sometimes the email might even say paypal but it still isn't from them. if you go to the paypal site they explain what to look for and how to forward the email to them so they can investigate. always open up a new page and go to paypal to check if the email claim is legit or not.

I get emails like that all the time. I just delete them. I never log in from the links that they put in the emails because I know they are a fake and will just take my money. There isn't much but I earned what there is and no one is going to steal it from me.
