This is spam email.

People try to do this to get your paypal information (if you have any)

Luckily for you, you do not have any paypal information and are immune to such annoyances.

I would mark it as spam.

and remember, be careful who you give your email address and personal information out to.

Contact someone regarding requests via e-mail asking to update my account info

Any emails from Paypal will always use your name to address you and the return email address is always never anything else. Chances are excellent its a phishing email, you should report it to PayPal and forward it to their security department.

Contact PayPal by phone or via the website to follow up on this message. If anyone call you, claiming to be from PayPal, asking you to confirm your account info, it may be a scam / thief, trying to hijack 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.

We rec'd an email this morning from Paypal confirming "we have paid 219.95 using PaylPal".and will be charged to our credit card/account. When I went to the link to dispute transaction...

If you believe you do not have an account with PayPal, disregard this message. However, if you want to check further, log in to PayPal directly via Do not click any links in your email with dubious messages like this.

If you are now in PayPal, log in using your email address where this message was sent. Paypal will detect if this is a registered account or not. I highly suggest you check your bank accounts too for unscrupulous transactions.

I recently ordered a Cats Paw 3-pack from "Cat's Paw". You paid them the $29.95 + $5.00 s&h. I received only 1 glove out of the order, not 3 gloves as was ordered. The transaction...

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.

I ordered from bett2892 july22 trans.Id:1JLB8141890125970U 4 rolls wallpapper boarder, amount $33.96paid on paypal

Hello Mary

I'm assuming that you didn't get what you ordered.

If you haven't, my suggestion would be to go to PayPal and get the information to contact the payee.

Contact them and see what they offer for a solution.

If they ignore your request, you can always go to PayPal and submit a dispute against the payee.

When you submit a dispute, PayPal sends an email to the payee and gives them a certain time period to resolve the issue.

If the issue doesn't get resolved, PayPal will keep that on file and it will be posted in the payees account as an "unresolved dispute"

PayPal monitors disputes and if there are consistencies in disputes, an account can either be "limited" or "frozen".

If an account is "limited" or "frozen" the account can't request payment, make payments or can't close the account.

Before submitting a dispute I'd suggest you contact the payee first to save any future headaches.

I hope this helps and you get your problem resolved.

I ordered and authorized PayPal to pay to Oscar Thompson; First of all I need to know if that money was paid and if not, please stop payment. The shoes have not arrived and I...

I think the solution is fairly straight forward for this issue.

You used PayPal and one of the nice things about PayPal is that the have a Dispute Resolution Center.

File a dispute against the payee.

PayPal monitors all disputes and sets a time limit on them.

They send an email to the payee and inform them of the dispute against them.

If within the set time period the payee chooses not to resolve the issue, PayPal can put a "limit" on their account or "freeze" it.

In either case, the payee won't be able to receive payments, make payments or close their account to remove the funds.

This is PayPal's way of protecting the consumer from fraudulent businesses.

I hope this helps and you get your problem resolved.

All the best to you.
