Hello, I just recently experienced a suspicious email from Paypal requesting that I give them information regarding my bank account. In the email I was asked to give my my debit card information, this was odd to me because Paypal does not ask for your debit card info. Also I like to add that the email was not addressed to me it was addressed "customer". Paypal sends emails addressed to you in your name not "customer". So Mylotters be aware when you receive emails from Paypal. Make sure the email states YOUR NAME!!!!

If you are new to Paypal be ready to get hundreds of those emails. Just be sure to forward them to Paypal because they check them out. Most people know that these are scams and never respond to them.

We always need to pay attention to Paypal's mails. A lot of them arrive to me too, and t's so boring when they're fakes.

Make sure you forward that email to paypal as a suspected phising email they will have the email disabled. Forward the email to spoof@paypal.com Don't ever give info through an email from paypal always type in the stie paypal.com and access your account that way.

I get emails from some place stating that they are paypal but I do not respond to them. I go to paypal's web site to investigate for myself. So thanks for the information, Zoomzoom.
