Just a heads up... If you get an email from Paypal asking you to "update" your credit card info, [b]Don't do it. [/b] The email looks like it's from paypal, and actually redirects you to paypal after you've entered your info so it tries to look legit. In reality, you've just sent off your credit card info to some scammer. I've heard of these emails before, but just got one for the first time. So James T. Kirk just updated his paypal account with a bum card number... that'll be pretty interesting if one of them tries to use the card number. [BD] If you see one of these, forward it to accessviolation@paypal.com.

I have received two of these in recent weeks and I did report both of them! I agree that they look VERY OFFICIAL and the one I got today was the best I have seen yet! Following are some screen shots.... It made it look like you were in PAYPALs website and look what someone would be giving away if they filled in the blanks!!!

One would hope asking for your password, driver's lic. no., mother's maiden name, PIN no., etc. would be a giveaway, that things aren't right, but that does look exactly like PayPal's pages.

Paypal IS ANTI- SECOND AMENDMENT. Don't support their efforts or political stance by using their service

SS#? DL#? They went a little overboard didn't they?
