Checked my email this morning and saw an email that is supposedly from Paypal titled " Notice: (PP-764-811-010)". Well, I open the email (I have virus protection and didn't open any attachments) and the subject line is titled "Notice: (PP-403-377-263)". Two different notice numbers....not like Paypal to make a mistake like that. It says that my account is limited since they needed some personal info. And there's a link to the resolution center provided in the email. Well, I put my cursor over it (didn't click) and it shows it going to "paypal.com-webstr.us. Another redflag. So I log onto Paypal manually and type in the dispute numbers above. No such records to my account. I inform Paypal about this via email. Just giving you guys a heads up.

ETA: Also pulled up full headers on the email and it's definitely not from Paypal. Coming from

Big mistake replying to spam.

It lets the spammers know that the the email address is "confirmed good".

Unless you'd LIKE to get more spam....

That address is junk anyway, Its just my "real" address that I have to use for Ebay and Gunbroker. It gets logged into only when Im using it which is about once every few months
