    paypal question

    hi someone (not from HUKD) wants to pay me via paypal and requested my ID.

    is it secure to give out? Any chances they get access to my funds in the bank acc tied to paypal account?

    as I did not do much trading outside ebay/HUKD, am a bit skeptical.

    thanks in advance

    Its only your email address they need & its fine to give that out - you could send them a money request if you want to cover yourself more - you just need their email address.

    just your email address only, thats all they need to transfer money into your account :w00t:

    As I expected this guy has sent an Instant Payment Notification from [email protected] by labelling it as [email protected] with a notice (below) which is very fishy.

    "Important Note:This PayPal® payment has been deducted from the buyer's account and has been "APPROVED" but will not be credited to your account until the shipment reference/tracking number is sent to us for verification so as to secure both the buyer and the seller.Below are the necessary information requested before your account will be credited. Send tracking number to us or email us through this mail ([email protected]) and our post care service will attend to you. As soon as you send us the shipment's tracking number to us for security purposes and the safety of the buyer and the seller,the money will be credited to your account.
    **PLEASE NOTE**
    Once item has been shipped and the tracking number sent to us,
    You will receive a "CONFIRMATION EMAIL" from PayPal® Team informing you that the Fund has been credited"

    Mmmm seems a bit odd!
    I would contact them and maybe say you are having problems accessing your paypal account & ask them to pay via cheque/postal order or cash on collection.
    I would also report it to PayPal as they will probably take some action as well as its false impersionation. :thumbsup:
