Fraud E-Mail Message From PayPal

Writer Wishes To Remain Anonymous

Over the years I have avoided PayPal because of all the horror stories that I have heard about. Unfortunately, recently it was necessary for me to activate a PayPay account to make a payment for purchase of a book from a private non-profit philatelic organization. No alternative payment methods were available. A few years back when the philatelic organization was considering using PayPay for receiving annual membership dues, I was on the board of directors and violently opposed any association with PayPal period. The board voted to use PayPay in spite of my objections.

Today, I received a e-mail message from “aw-service@paypal.com” informing me that a new e-mail address had been added to my PayPal account. The added address was a “yahoo.com” address, I do not and have never used “yahoo” period. There was a link supposed to which you could make inquiry. The whole thing is totally false as I have only contacted PayPal once to open the account to purchase the book as reference above. On attempting, to determine details or contact them, “Forget it” as they are absolutely impossible to reach! The reply form asked some detailed personally information such as password, etc. that I refuse to give. As a result, I am calling by phone my credit card company and to CANCEL my credit card and get a new one issued to AVOID ANY POSSIBILITY OF THE CARD BEING USED IN A FRAUDLENT MANNER by someone else. Never again will I ever use PayPal period. They ARE IMPOSSIBLE TO CONTACT!
