don't click on anything, or reply etc. Forward the whole thing to firstname.lastname@example.org. Don't write anything in it. just click forward at the top of outlook express and send it just as it is. Then delete it.
Ive just checked on my emails again. I had an email a few weeks ago from ebay about this seller saying i had sent a payment to her which she hadnt taken................I contacted her and she couldnt understand it either. I dont know what is going on. I'll wait to see what Ebay say.
Ok, I'd look in your paypal account and call them. They will be able to explain. It doesn't sound like spoof. Just maybe she had a problem with her account and couldn't take the payment, and now wants you to resend it?
Yes, contact her but first contact paypal. Just ring them up. The number is on the contact us page and you get a web pin number to use.
They can probably clarify what is going on. It sounds like she had a claiming issue (probably nothing dodgy, just wrong account details or similar) and hasn't been able to access your original payment.
How can I tell if an email "from" paypal.com is actually FROM paypal.com? Do they always start with Dear firstname surname? I know when I sold something the emails I had from Paypal had green verified tick things in Hotmail, but I've had more since then that say Dear Chuff Muffin haven't.
I had my Paypal hacked last year (and I have NO idea how) so I'm a bit wary!
There's actually a tutorial on their website if you fancy having a look at that. I haven't - probably should.
I never click on anything, I always go to my account and sign in, and if it's for real it'll be in there too - I mean there will be a message the same as the email, for instance I had one about updating account info the other day, wasn't sure if it was genuine but there was no link in the email anyway.
I went into my account and it was flagged up as the page after I signed in, like before you proceed type of thing.
They only wanted to know if I was a personal or business seller anyway. Sorry you got hacked, that's very bad luck.
