Thanks Ron, thanks Greyhound. I nearly fell for it, but was on the alert when I clicked on the link in the email and it asked me to confirm all my details again on a form that looked remarkably like Paypal's!!
I didn't, of course then got paranoid and manually went into Paypal to change my password again (just in case!!) then searched and searched for ways of reporting the 'incident'.
Must have reported it about 3 different times to different sections and wasn't sure whether it was the Australian Paypal site or the American one that I should report to or whether they were the same.
(My account began in the US, I believe)
Anyway, have had a few computer generated responses from Paypal - you just never know who or what you are dealing with online. Whether it's a computer humoring you or whether it's an actual person 'dealing with it'!
This is when I really, really despise doing things "online". Not that it's too different from being conned 'in person'.
Ah well . . . what can we all do but 'be aware' and support each other?
It's a crazy, crazy world that we live in!
