    I cannot getin into my Paypal account. It says my email address has changed and it has not!

    Did you receive an email like this?

    Dear Paypal member,
    You have added as a new email address for your Paypal account.
    If you did not authorize this change, check with family members and others who may have
    access to your account first. If you still feel that an unauthorized person has changed
    your email, submit the form attached to your email in order to keep your original email
    and restore your Paypal account.
    If you are using Internet Explorer please allow ActiveX for scripts to perform all data transfers
    Thank you for using Paypal !
    Please do not reply to this email.
    This mailbox is not monitored and you will not receive a response.

    If so and you click on the links you have given your paypal info to a scammer and you will need to contact paypal at once to stop any other scams on your account.

    Hello Elizabeth

    If you've ordered anything via PayPal you can always contact the payee via their email address in the order history.

    All of their information will be shown so that you can contact them in case you didn't receive what was ordered.

    If you send them an email with the details of your order and what you actually received, and they choose not to resolve it (in most cases they will) you can always file a dispute with PayPal against the payee.

    You'll need to enter all of the details of the order and what you actually received.

    Once the dispute has been posted, the payee receives an email from PayPal informing them of the dispute.

    The dispute is monitored by PayPal and if there isn't any resolution within a certain period of time set by PayPal, the payees account will show that they've chosen not to resolve a dispute and is displayed in their account.

    I'd suggest contacting "Cats Paw" first and see what they do.

    If they choose to ignore you, then you are in your rights to file a dispute.

    I hope this helps.
