I received an email from Paypal today that informed me that my account access had been limited due to a security issue. The email provided links to clik on to take me to paypal so I could log-in and address the issue.
Obviously just another phishing scam, right? Except for the email came to my main paypal email addy and used my first and last NAME. Correctly. No dear sir or user or any BS like that.
Anyway.. I go to Paypal directly (no link used) and there are no issues with my account. I had just used it a couple days ago, and everything looks perfectly normal. Paypal says my account is just fine. Status quo.
So, obviously, it WAS phishing. But has anyone here ever gotten a paypal phish that actually used your name? That's pretty troubling to me. And I assume it has to be connected to my recent transaction, as it's never happened to me before.
