#1 more scams

Post by ed »

last week I had a problem with paypal whereby my login and telephone validation was working perfectly but after the successful validation I got a screen saying

"something went wrong, we cant validate that it's you'

This happened when I tried to login to my paypal account and also when paying traders.

After a few telephone conversations with customer support it transpires that paypal customers who don't have a mobile phone may be at a disadvantage. Customer support seem to have fixed if for me, but it took them 2 attempts.

Since this has been resolved I have had 2 emails from supposedly Paypal informing me of purchases I have for a massive tv for £1200 and one for 'target gifts' for £129. Both these emails have links for further info.

coincidence or what!
