        you know spammers, fishing emails are getting smarter nowaday, I like to hear your inputs on this, before I will do something about it first.  Ok, I received 2 emails, 1 from netspend and 1 from paypal, the emails like this

        Customer Services has identified a problem with your NetSpend account.

        To correct this issue, complete the form attached to this email.

        Thank you for using NetSpend!

        ...I've received nearly similar emails, also from facebook and netteller. Glad my english isn't that good, before using translation I'm always deleting. If there would be problems for real, I would mention this while login into the accounts...!?!

        I've counted all free money I've been offered via email a day, just for fun while I was bored:

        ...roundabout 125 emails (100% spam) per day: free ND offered: ca. 750,- $

        I would never ever answer or fill out anything sent in an email like that.  If you have concerns call them on the phone, but do not give any info in these type of emails.  Legitimate companies (credit cards, banks, etc.) do not send emails asking for information.

        Don't do it!

        Taaa, I too have been receiving those emails and before I delete them, I forward them to rightful sites thinking they(paypal,netspend,) need to be aware of those in order to be alerted.

        I agree with med 100%. This is nothing more then a scam. No one has got to your Pay Pal account. Not yet anyway. If you fill out the paperwork then they will have all the info they need.

        Also if you are ever in doubt check the email address it comes from. It should be official address. Along with the Pay Pal logo on the email. If there is ever an issue with Pay Pal you will find the details of the problem directly at the site when you log in.

        It's a nasty scam to steal from your account. I would send a copy of that email to Pay Pal and call them so they can be on alert of this scam. Because if it is happening to you there is many many others it's happening to too.

        thanks everyone,

        I logged in to netspend and paypal and there's no messages, alerts, issues at all, so these are absolutely scammers.  I will try to report them to paypal and netspend when I have time.  Darn, I'm mad, just thinking about many innocent people will be victimized by these emails, but what else can I do.

        you can usually report things to postmaster@(site address) e.g. paypal.com.  Just forward the email to the postmaster.

        You can send the paypal one to spoof@paypal.com TAAA. They take them seriously. And they definitely are phishing emails. I don't have any info on netspend but they probably have something similar.

        hehehe, I like paypal, they act quick,

        Dear xxxxxxxxx,

        Thank you for contacting PayPal Customer Support. I will be happy to
        assist you with the spoof email you were sent.

        Thank you for bringing this to our attention at this time I have
        researched into your account and you account has not been limited in
        anyway. I would however like you to login to your account and make sure
        all of the transactions were authorized by you. Also if you did click on
        anything in the email you received please go through the process of
        changing your password and your security questions. I have provided you
        with some steps on how we would like you to report this email you
        received.

        Here’s how to report a phishing/ spoof email:
          1. Do not change the subject line and do not forward the message as
        an attachment.
          2. Forward the email to spoof@paypal.com.
          3. Delete the email from your inbox.

        We'll send you an email response to let you know if the email is indeed
        fraudulent. In the meantime, don't click on any links or download any
        attachments within the suspicious email.

        Thank you TAAADAAA... just had to add that this is hitting close to home

        I have personally received email from two of the companies I have store credit cards with that admit this happened and give departments to contact within their companies if you have further questions.

        They do not include your information in these emails, nor do they ask you for your information to be sent in via email. They do downplay the situation a bit, as if not to cause panic... but they do come from stores we all use and probably shop at regularly!
