    U.S.A. Attempted ripoff posing as PayPal Saco Maine

*Consumer Suggestion: You are fine

Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

I got an e-mail this morning asking me to confirm my payment of $497 for a Nokia cell phone I never heard of -shipping to a Bill Chang in Saco Maine - I noticed there was a typo towards the end - a mispelling - that was a big tip off but other than that it was a dead ringer for my regular emails from PayPal. Luckily I did not click on the 'confirm' button - now I am wondering if I need to shut down my accounts with eBay & PayPal...(?)

#1 Consumer Suggestion

You are fine

AUTHOR: Dave - (U.S.A.)

As long as you didn't give them your personal info, you are fine. These scumbags are just phishing for your Paypal account Id and password, credit card info, ssn, first born, and anything else they can get their scummy hands on... if you didn't click on nothing, don't worry about it. I get about 5 of these emails a week.
