Question about PayPal Accounts
Test Message says: You have paid $17.00USD to African barber shop. View receipt: https://www.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/?cmd=ppay-inv&id=INV2-X26F-RNA9-U3LQ-G2R2&ireceipt=1 I replied: This is not an authorized payment! How did this happen? Text replied: PayPal: You're not activated for PayPal Mobile. Visit: https://www.paypal.com/mobile to activate. Want to learn more? Reply with 'help'. I am reluctant to do that in fear of a scam that would access my accounts to a hacker.

Delete it immediately as it is a scam
the word help in the message is a give away
you can verify the message by using your paypal site and go in through your account settings or simply ring paypal on their listed phone number ( not the one in the message )

SOURCE: Email asking for account details
This is 100% scam and we should aware of this type of emails. Usually they include links like "click here to verify your account" etc.. and in most cases, this email isn't text format but image format where they insert hyperlink and as soon as click on the area of the mail, you'll be directed to another phishing site with the similar website like paypal (only the appearance,) if so open it, but don't enter any information and check the web address on the address bar, you'll see something like http://wwww.paypal.com (4 w's) or www1.paypal.com (3w's with 1), etc..
Just ignore it and forward or send this email to paypal directly to their Scam Alert email email@example.com
This has been circulating for some time now, so we need to be aware of this, they can easily copy your paypal's password and username/email address as soon as you attempt to login. There more with this, at your first attempt, you'll get an error message that your username or password is incorrect, at that time they've already captured your login account info and have been directed to the original paypal website. If you don't believe, use wrong/random email address and password, click login and see what happens.
This is What We Call Phishing.
Thanks for using FixYa.

SOURCE: I received the following notice.
No, this is a scam. If you would like to investigate further I would suggest contacting paypal at 1-402-935-2050. They would never contact you by email and would never have you download an attachment.
