Re: Can paypal be scammed - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
A buyer can a issue e-check thru PayPal. Paypal will tell you immediately that the buyer has sent $$$$ to your paypal account but the funds are held for 3 days until the e-check clears. In that time the buyer will try to get the title cleared in their name hoping you'll see the transaction and take it as gospel. After 3 days if the buyers dose not have the funds to cover the e-check paypal will tell you the e-check was decided by the buyers bank and PayPal will auto try again in 3 days and will take another 3 days for the e-check to clear. The buyer can drag the payment out for a month if your gullible enough. Never agree to an e-check payment by PayPal.
There is another email scam going around using PayPals name all in hopes of getting your login info. If your a PayPal customer you should be aware that if PayPal ever sends you mail they will use your full name in the email when they are addressing you. The scam that's going around is an email sent to you with PayPal logo and inside the mail they tell you PayPal has detected unauthorized transactions recorded on your account and log into PayPal to verify your account is secure, or mail saying your recent purchase has been blocked and login to unblock your account. The fake email that has this info always address your name as dear client or addressing you by your email address. The mail looks legit PayPal logo and has a link for you to click to get to the PayPal login page. Don't use the link to check out your account. Close the mail and pull up PayPal to log in.
