Angry Pay Pal Weird Email??

Had an email that looked like it come from Pay Pal, but you need to be careful if you get this. Said my account has been suspended because purchases from it recently. Odd since not used for 4 months.

I didn't click on the link in the email, but did go into website at Pay Pal. Last purchase was 4 months ago, and shows the small balance that I have left in there. So forwarded the email to spoof@paypal.com

Looks like someone could be playing around with accounts and maybe just fishing for info. Be careful.

Those spammers send those to emails that have never had a pay pal account. They are just hoping for someone who falls for it. Don't ever click on those kinds of links.

I am getting all those types and now lately ones with "legal documents".. like complaint paperwork, court needs your new address, all just junk.
If I don't know about it in advance EVEN from people I deal with (lets say really one of my banks, etc.) I don't open it, I delete. I don't care what they are trying to tell me. If in doubt, I still delete and call them.

I have had to do this (call) several times with VENDORS who think without my permission it's OK to send me the invoice by email instead of real mail. Don't get wrong, I'll take them via email.. BUT WE AGREE to that first, not secondarily!!

Annoying --- truly annoying and for what REAL reason, to wreck havoc in someone's life -- randomly?? UG!!

Exactly! I'm getting an "eviction notice" nearly every day--that's a new one lately. And those "PayPal" things from HK (Hong Kong) and UK (United Kingdom). All get immediately reported as Spam.

Just placing the cursor under the "from" address usually gives you an idea of where the Junk really comes from.
