    Default Beware: (Your Account Has Been Violated)

    Watch out, if you received an email from "PayPal" with the subject Your Account Has Been Violated. This could be a scam. Contents of the email look like this:


    You have added new address michelksr06@aol.com as a new email address for your
    PayPal account.
    If you did not authorize this change or if you need assistance with
    your account, please contact PayPal customer service at:
    https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_login-run

    Thank you for using PayPal!
    The PayPal Team

    Why not? They are supposed to be safe...
    Any bad experience you had with them?

    I always use paypal when buying things from Ebay, and so far it's very reliable.

    I always see these emails in my account, but i never trust them.
