Another fake PayPal receipt. How do I know it's a fake?
1) I didn't buy the item quoted
2) It doesn't include my PayPal username
3) If I click on the link provided to cancel the transaction it takes me to http://188.8.131.52/cgi-bins/webscr.htm?cmd...... where I'm asked for my PayPal login information and where the LogIn button take me to www.iolfree.ie - definitely not the address of the PayPal website.
NEVER click on a link in a PayPal email. Always enter the address of the Paypal website directly into your browser. If you have really bought the item stated, you will find it in your account history.
IF you think you might have accidentally given your account information to a scammer, contact PayPal immediately.
