PayPal Victims Us

Writer Wishes To Remain Anonymous

I received the following email:

“We recently have determined that different computers have logged into your PayPal account, and multiple password failures were present before the login. As our employee did not manage to reach you, this email has been sent to your notice. There for your account has been temporarily suspended. We need you to confirm your identity in order to regain full privileges of your account. If this is not completed by August 5th, 2005, we reserve the right to terminate all privileges of your account indefinitly, as it may have been used for fraudulent purposes. We thank you for your cooperation in this manner. To confirm your identity please follow the link below: https://www.paypal.com/

Thank you for your patience in this matter.

PayPal – Customer Service

Please do not reply to this e-mail as this is only a notification.”

When I tried to go to the www.paypal.com link it took me to “paypal victims us”.

I had received a previous email saying something about updating my email address, and then another one saying my contact email address had been changed. When I followed the links to verify (and report the fraudulent activity), the links went to deadends.

I cannot find a phone number anywhere to contact Paypal to find out what is going on.

I had only used Paypal once, in a transaction to buy something, and have no idea what is now going on with my account.
