Re: World Health Organization COVID Fund Invoice Scam

I received this invoice a few days ago and just noticed it in my PayPal account today. I was able to successfully cancel the invoice request by doing the following:

 

1. Click "Activity" from the nav bar

2. Scroll down to the transaction line item

3. Click the drop down arrow next to "Pay" on the right side of the transaction line

4. From the dropdown menu, select "Cancel"

5. A dialogue box opens up and allows you to cancel the request and also add a note

 

I put "UNAUTHORIZED REQUEST" in the notes section and successfully canceled it. Hope this helps you all!

I have no dropdown arrow next to this line item. Only completed transactions have this. The WHO invoice has a side arrow > which takes you to the invoice with the only option being to pay it. The Cancel button on the line item takes you to the invoice with the only option being to pay it.

Not sure if you're on the latest version of the PayPal platform, but the method above worked for me and the request is no longer visible in my account.

What 'version?' ...whatever version is being served to me on the website. How would I know what 'version' it would be, or that there would be different versions of Paypal.

PayPal runs various beta versions to users periodically to test upcoming features and changes. Can you post a screenshot of the line item for this request and what shows up when you're hovering over the "Pay" button on the right side of the line item? There should be a menu that's exposed which is where you cancel the request.

To: ChrisCooling: I am the OP of this thread. Half of the posts on this topic are from you. It could be considered spamming. You also forgot to insult those posters, like you did to me.

What did you use? The app? Android or iPhone? A web browser? Mobile? Computer? This does not work for me either period. I have tried both in Android app and web browser.

Re: World Health Organization COVID Fund Invoice Scam

this absolutely does not work, it should, but clicking cancel goes directly to payment mode and asks what tip amount I want to add.
