PayPal Users Take Note (Scam Alert):

If you use PayPal for transactions on classified sites, be on the lookout for scam e-mails "thanking you for your recent purchase" using PayPal. They will list a bogus sale, complete with product descriptions, prices, and transaction numbers, etc., making it look like someone has hacked your account. They offer a link to follow (which requires your PayPal log-in info) to dispute the transaction. If you take the bait, then they got you.

Forward the scam e-mail to PayPal for investigation.

Send to:
spoof(at)PayPal(dot)com.
Good luck Mike K4KJC
