This guy must be really stupid…

I just got this email (to my ham radio account, which isn’t used for anything personal or financial…). It wasn’t even addressed to me specifically, contains a misspelled word or two, and the punctuation is terrible. Oh, I’m sure this must have really come from PayPal – as if I’ve never seen one of their emails (sent to the only account I have associated with PayPal). Wow. This guy must be really stupid. I tried to do a reverse-lookup of his number, but he’s at least smart enough to keep his information unlisted. I did forward this email to his phone provider, though. I bet they know who he is. Maybe they can have a little talk with him.

    I just got the same email this morning, with slightly different wording: “We have recently noticed one or more attempts to log into your PayPal account and we have reasons to belive
    that your account is used by a third party without your authorization.”

    Exact same phone number, which I searched and then found your blog. Also this number was used on a couple of scams reported in Wash. state.

    Thanks for posting this.
