Many of us use PayPal as a way to pay for items we bought or sold on the internet. It is a useful service – even though they do take their time about getting your money to you when you ask for it.

Other than that – decent value – people trust the service – and the trust the brand – which is why the crooks like to use it.

This came across our desk recently – don’t believe a word of it. Someone wants to steal your identity.

    This has been going on for well over 18 months. They are also using other financial services to try the same scam. Just mark it a phishing scam and delete.
