If you already know it is fake which of course it is then you don't need to send it to paypal.

Re: Scammed by : UAB

I think you're incorrect.

 

I was under the impression that PayPal does more than just record the offending emails. Like checking the source domain, contacting email domain administrators, reporting offenders, getting malicious websites, webpages (& their operators) shut down. If they don't, they should start.

 

Report them all. Always.

 

If I'm wrong, I hope you'll set me straight.

forward message to:

 

spoof@paypal.com

 

after forwarding your message to Spoof@paypal.com , I'd delete the received message.

I just had the SAME thing happen to me! Selling my iPad and they wanted me to send it Nigeria. Got emails from "paypal" but nothing on the actual paypal site. I didn't send it and now they want to report me...go ahead. I saved everything.

Re: Scammed

I had almost the same thing, asked for the item to be sent overseas, had the emails through from paypal, but I fell for it and now they have a very nice phone going to them, I'm out of pocket.... I hope karma catches up with them. It is disgusting how they do it.
