Default Paypal emailed me a blank email

Just received an email from PayPal. The entire page was blank only the subject had 9 digits number. Never experience such thing very weird. I have yet to check my account to see if it stands.

Nice headsup - as a cardinal rule, I never click into my paypal from e-mails...whether from pp or from potential scam - I take the extra step to make sure I am on the right windows user account and I do a manual login ALWAYS.

Got one of these too, happened this morning. I just assumed Paypal kinda glitched.

Some reps are claiming it was some TOS update notice or something that failed to be sent out properly. Nothing really important.

A little off-topic, My wife got a spoof email from her bank, or at least pretending to be her bank...Lucky for her she asked me about it and I looked at it and in 2 seconds I saw it was not real.

Some shady people out there.

Used to get a ton of this from scammers.

I remember getting those emails that you account has been compromised and someone accessed it other then you, please click here to sign into your account to check it.




Go to the pp account when you get these to check it.

Check the sender IP and the ISP. last time I checked Ebay ISP is Ebay, I think it will be the same case for PayPal, the IP will tell you if its a spam or not.
