Just got a notice apparently from PayPal saying my account was inactive and would I please enter my password. I'm sure they were going to ask me for my bank information next. After that there was probably some Nigerian named Sani Abatwa who had twenty million dollars that he wanted to get out of the country.
I have seen tons of scams (I sell vintage stuff on ebay as my income)...one good one was this guy contacted me to accept a brand new IBM laptop, in order to sell it for him. He was a newbie on ebay wanting someone who has a good rep with big feedback numbers. Said the laptop would be coming from Amazon.com but under some lady's name. He says his cousin works in returns and it was originally bought in her name etc etc (yeah right eh?)
Forward these (or any suspicious PayPal-related emails) to firstname.lastname@example.org. They'll confirm that it was unauthorized, and add it to their growing store of evidence against these morons.
