I've had around 5 or 6 hundred in a similar vein over the years :winky:
They are becoming a lot more subtle than that one nowadays though! :Angry:

:ROFLMAO: I personally would ignore it, to much fraud happening with this sort of thing. If concerned about it I would ring the whoever your account is with to find out. Do not issue your account details to this email under any circumstances.:thumb::thumb:

Sadly LOADSA folk get kidded in to 'updating their information' by these mails..

99.9% of peeps who believe their PayPal or e-mail account has been 'hacked' have been victims.
Of course they never believe it !
Instead they think there is some spotty oik in a darkened room with a magic program that automatically runs through millions of combinations of letters and numbers just like in the movies, until a password is cracked..

Occam's razor springs to mind !

I dont even open them. I right click on the post, select 'show full header', and check just where it's come from, and the return addy. Most say fred@yahoo.com. :thumb:

Had our PayPal attacked last week tried to take a thousand dollars out :Eeek:

It's now frozen waiting on PayPal to sort it out pain in the ass we use it a lot.
Had to change all our passwords as well just in case.

I read an article recently that suggested that these fraud spams are intentionally rubbish with bad spelling and implausible unchanging scenarios. This, apparently acts as a gullibility filter and means they don't waste time trying to scamming someone who will twig when it comes to the crunch.
