Scammers can use Pay Pal and Fed Ex to access your bank account.

Scammers can use Pay Pal and Fed Ex to access your bank account.

A merchant (scammer) advertises a product with a very attractive price on line. When you order the item, the merchant offers Pay Pal as a method of payment. After you finish the transaction the merchant (scammer) notifies Pay Pal that the product has been shipped and supplies a tracking number. The next day you are informed by Fed Ex that your package has been delivered. But of course it has not. And the money has been extracted from your account by the merchant (scammer) not Pay Pal.

Re: Scammers can use Pay Pal and Fed Ex to access your bank account.

This is exactly what has happened to us and I cant seem to get help. Fedex says it is delivered as it was addressed (not to me) and Paypal has closed the case because it was delivered. How can I get help please?! Thanks!!

They did this to me as well, only used UPS.  Said item was delivered as well.  So frustrating!
