Found 6th Jan 2010
My sis has only just joined Ebay & Paypal,i always ordered stuff for her before,anyway i digress!

Earlier she had an email from Paypal asking to confirm details again,i'd already told her NOT to click on anything in an email.

She entered details but didn't confirm and did not proceed.

But is this likely to be dodgy,i'm not sure without seeing the emai or anything arghhhh

im sure if she didnt click through after filling her details then she should be fine, otherwise just get her to change her passwords etc asap

Well yes it will be dodgy. Any reputable company will make you sign in to confirm any details. But if she didn't do anything she should be fine.

owdo
so long as she didnt confirm then shes ok,lots of superb scammers doin paypal scam,always log into paypal to vheck for messages and do not reply to emails sent out to you

i'd still change the password right now, just in case.
