Good Morning, Has anyone else ever received a Email stating that They sent money to "Nova Armory"? This is the second time this has happened. I'm sure this did not come from PayPal, BUT wat to make sue o money goes to these people. I can never find a way to ask PayPal about this, and not sure how to make sure these people do not take my money!
Solved! Go to Solution.
If its a spoof then NEVER USE ANY LINK OR ANY PHONE NUMBER.
Firstly if the email/text addressed you as ''Dear Member'' / ''Customer'' / ''Client'' OR your ''email address'' then that confirms its a spoof as paypal would address you by your full name eg Dear John Smith.
Secondly if there was a link OR attachment in that email/text to ''cancel'' any transaction or ''confirm'' any details then again it would be a spoof.
Also if they ask you to call the number in the email then it would be fake paypal agents trying to scam you for money to 'fix' something.
If there was a problem with your account Paypal would not ask you to click on an unsafe link in an email / download an attachment OR phone them on a number in an email, they would direct you to log in normally and go to the resolution or the message centre for more information.

I got an email saying I authorized a payment to Nova Armory for $799 with a receipt number and a transfer date from my bank account. But no transfer was done. and I emailed Paypal to initiate a complaint.
I have had the same thing and also repeated phone calls from a number in Washington D.C. How do we stop this. No money has left my account but I do to like this!
I got it too, as well as the LifeLock phishing e-mails. Whatever you do, DO NOT click the link or call the phone number. It is a scam and was even written up as "Scam of teh day" back in October on Scamicide.
