A CON ARTIST SENT ME A FAKE PAYPAL EMAIL "INSTANT NOTIFICATION OF PAYMENT RECIEVED"  LUCKY FOR ME I ALWAYS CHECK MY PAYPAL ACCOUNT TO CONFIRM PAYMENT.  SO I DID AND TO MY SURPRISE THERE WAS NO PAYMENT, I COULDN'T BELIVE I WAS NEARLY HAD BY THIS CON PERSON(S), I WOULD LIKE TO MAKE EBAYERS AWARE OF THIS.
THIS PERSON(S) REQUEST THAT YOU MUST SHIP THE ITEM(S) TO NIGERIA, AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

YOU WILL RECEIVE A FAKE PAYPAL EMAIL SAYING YOU HAVE RECEIVED PAYMENT FROM THEM WHEN THERE IS NO PAYMENT BEEN MADE.

THE CON ARTIST'S WILL TRY TO MAKE YOU FEEL SORRY FOR THEM BY SAYING IT IS A CHILDS BIRTHDAY IN NIGERIA AND THEY NEED YOU TO SEND ITEM(S) ASAP" SO PLEASE HELP ME OUT

DONT BE FOOLED!!!

WHAT TO DO IF YOU COME INTO CONTACT WITH THE CON ARTIST:

1. ALWAYS CHECK YOUR PAYPAL ACCOUNT TO MAKE SURE YOU HAVE RECIEVED PAYMENT, EVEN IF THE FAKE EMAIL SAYS YOUR PAYMENT WONT BE CLEAR UNTILL THEY RECEIVE A TRACKING NUMBER, DONT BELIVE IT!
IF YOU HAVE RECIEVED PAYMENT YOU WILL HAVE SOME SORT OF CONFIRMATION ON YOUR PAYPAL ACCOUNT, EVEN IF PAYMENT IS NOT CLEAR IT SHOULD STILL SHOW UP IN YOUR PAYPAL ACCOUNT.

2. COPY THE EMAIL AND GO TO PAYPAL WEBSITE AND CLICK ON "REPORTING SPOOF EMAIL" AND SEND PAYPAL THE COPY OF THE FAKE EMAIL, IF THE CON ARTIST IS A EBAY BUYER YOU SHOULD ALSO SEND EBAY A COPY OF THE SPOOF EMAIL.

3. DELETE ALL EMAILS FROM THE CON ARTIST, COULD CONTAIN A VIRUS.

4. IF YOU HAVE GIVEN ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION YOU MUST CHANGE ALL PASSWORDS TO ACCOUNTS, MAIN ONE'S BEING PAYPAL AND EBAY.

WE MUST ALL COME TOGETHER TO STOP THIS PERSON(S), AND KEEP OUR EBAY AND PAYPAL ACCOUNTS SAFE.
I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO KNOW WHAT THE POLICE ARE DOING ABOUT THIS?

THANKS FOR READING THIS, HOPE IT KEEPS YOU SAFE.
