I received this email and don't know what to do about it.
Good afternoon. There was a pay of 200$ from my wallet on your wallet , as if I bought smth from you on Ebay. But I didn't do this. It must be a mistake. Write me on <removed> i'll send you the copy of invoice. Sorry to disturb you.
Log on to your account and see if there is a payment of $200. If not, just delete the email. If there is a payment, simply issue a refund. If there was a PayPal fee charged on the money, there is a 30 cents fee to issue refund , so refund the amount less 30 cents to cover the refund fee.
YES!!! I got the same exact email last night, from the same person, requesting I respond to the same email (<removed>). Also, if you look at your ebay account, there will be no seller invoice.
Uh, I hate people like this so much. How can you be so heartless and greedy towards your fellow man?
I recieved the same message this morning. knowing it was fradulatnet i just ignored it and the money request was canceled on thier end sometime this evening. Found this http://www.joewein.net/blog/2016/11/30/paypal-malware-social-engineering/ googling, apparently it's a new trending scam.
