You have changed your PayPal email address 9

Firstly – I hope you know that PayPal will NEVER address you as “Dear PayPal Customer”, they will always user your full, registered name.

Secondly – you are perfectly at liberty to add a new email address to your account. ┬áPayPal won’t email you and ask to confirm it to restore your account.

Thirdly – if that email address is a real one, it’s poor owner is going to find that she will have to change it as she will be flooded with spam.

DO NOT fill in the attached form – which will give this scammer all your credit card details.

You have added debra.middleton(@) as a new email address for your Paypal account.

    Hi, I also have just found this in my business gmail spam folder. I checked my paypal account to make sure and as an earlier post suggested I have now forwarded it to paypal.

    I have just received this one and checked using email trace. This is the result and I wasn’t sure whether the email was real until I googled the Debra Middleton email address and it brought me to this page. Thanks for all the notes. I can safely delete it.

    I got the Debra Middleton thing today. It just called me Dear Paypal customer…… not my name.
    But what is clever, is that it appears to come from the correct email address just like my normal paypal emails……. how do they do that???

    My dad has just had the exact same email. I googled the content and found this page. Earlier today he also had a call from “microsoft tech dept” which we also know was a hoax to give them remote access into my dads computer. These people need stopping.
