The scamers are at it again. I have recieved 2 emails so far from someone representing them selfs as Pay Pal. This is the one I recieved today. They want you to follow thier fake link to change you're pass word. Do not do it. Go directly to Pay Pal and report it to customer service.
It came from this address.
Or this one
They are probably using others also.

Scams all over the internet. Also, many simular warnings with asking for your eBay I.D & log-in info.

The wording is foreign as well using words such as 'your infos', etc.

Many creeps out there.

A Thought(ouch).If you find $100 layin on the sidewalk,technically it is yours to take and spend,but if you find a credit card and use it to buy $100 worth of stuff,you're a criminal.Seems unfair :)
