PHISHING ALERT Springfield Armory
Anybody else received a notice from PP saying you have just made a payment to Springfield Armory?
Pls can you help?
I am in UK where we are not allowed to have guns or ammo yet here is a notification saying I have just spent $499.00 with Springfield Armory.
How do I make sense of this. Sorry for being so naive, this is a first for me.
Thank you for reading this far,
Suspect fraud. I am in UK. Email rec'd from PP today says I paid $99.00 to Springfield Amory. Could not have done. No record of any such transaction on My Accoun. KINLY STOP PAYMENT IMMEDITELY!!!
Kindly check this Help Center article to verify whether the email is really from PayPal or not.
If it doesn't look legitimate, please forward the email to email@example.com. if it does look real, though, kindly check your PayPal account to see if the transaction is there, as well as your bank or credit card statements.
Hope this helps. Stay safe!
This is a total scam/fraud. One was to tell is to look at who the email is from at the top. It has nothing to do with PayPal. These are people trying to see if they can get into your computer and steal information. Do NOT respond in any way. Check your bank account. I know the same message came to me an I don't even own a gun so I Know I didn't purchase anything from Springfield Armory. After a few days (as the message said) check your account and thank the heavenly stars that you were smart enough to not respond because you will have NO charges on your account. PROMISE!
Just received email supposedly from PayPal Information that I successfully made a purchase for $650.98 from Springfield Armory LLC in Shreveport, LA on Nov. 18! No Way! Email actually was from a gmail account. I always check suspicious emails and do not reply. I notice this phish was also reported in May so I guess they are back at it.
I just received an email today saying they'll charge $899.90. Email says sent from: <removed>. See below:
