Overseas rentals via paypal can be a big scam. Proceed with extreme caution!

Here's a myspace profile for that email. She doesn't look like a credible person for that type of financial transaction.

No, check the reviews of the space you are renting, remember PayPal and similar escro pay services offer peotection to a certain dollar amount. This protects both the buyer and selller.

It can be a big scam but as all we know that PayPal is much secure about scams you just need to have proofs about payment and their scam so you can have your cash back in to your PP account.
I have used my PP account for apartment rental services when I was in Sydney last month with this company Short Term Accommodation Rentals Sydney so my experience was so nice.

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.

Change my old email adress; not longer used to cant change it because no convermation recieved at new address


Confirmation emails can take anywhere from 1 minute to a couple of days to be received in your email. A couple of days is rare, but it can happen. I would recommend that if after a day or two you don't receive the email to contact PayPal support so they can help you with the email change on your account.

I am not able to use paypal because my husband and I share the same e mail?

If your husband has already signed up for a PayPal account with that email address you will not be able to sign up a second account. You could either ask him for the PayPal; account password then add your account details to the PayPal account this would mean you would be sharing the PayPal account but be able to choice which account the purchase should go off when you make a purchase. The other option is you could make another email address for yourself and then sign up with that email address. You can get a free email account at or The last option is you could simply go to PayPal and say you forgot your password this would then ask you your email address put in the email address that you and your husband share and PayPal will send you a confirmation of the change of password to the email. Go to your email address and verify the action from the email they sent you. This will send you to a page where you can change the password to a new one. Affectively this will allow you to take over your husbands account.

Need a new password have tried but answer does not go to my email account. Can i possibly do this by phone?

The email address that you have given don't match with the one in the files of paypal. Try to request another password resets and supply all the email address that you are using with paypal.
