    Default PAYPAL Fraud

    Guys,

    Just something to look out for..

    Ive just had $69.60 taken out of my paypal account. Only reason I knew of it was I got an email to say that I had sent this payment to dingshazi99@hotmail.com

    Spoke to Paypal and the account dingshazi99@hotmail.com is not registered so very likely a fraud attempt.

    I've done all the nessasary like change password and secret questions etc and the payment has been cancelled - but look out for it as the Paypal person said that I wasnt the first one today to log this with reference to the above email address.

    Cheers

    Hmm..

    So upon further digging - the item that was mentioned on the paypal transaction is:
    blujay invoice #454372 - bowronhonu

    Bluejay is a free 'marketplace' site buy the looks of it - and bowronhonu is a seller:
    http://www.blujay.com/?page=profile&...ame=bowronhonu

    - now whats even more interesting when looking at the seller page above, is that they have registered in 'Middlesex - UK' , same area as me!

    hmmm

    TBH I thought this was a fake email on first glance too - but it wasnt. Genuine payment was attempted.

    Just trying to get hold of this 'bluejay' outfit now!

    Real emails from PayPal have your name in the title.

    Yip - and this was a real email as they made a real payment FROM me TO them. THere email address was not yet registerd in Paypal so I was able to cancel the payment.

    Paypal were able to see the transaction and have given it to the Fraud department.

    Sounds like it could be a good idea for everyone with a PayPal account to go in and change their Password, just in case.
