I have received notification of the use of my PayPal account for a gold necklace:

Cost $305 plus $20 shipping and handling.

Sent to: Charles Edwards
1015 Pleasant St.
Rehoboth, Maine 02769

I did not order this, would not order this and insist that this not be charged to my account. PayPal was notified and I will be notifying FTC, the Maine State Police and any other agency having authority.

Just had the same email sent to me, with same address and payment details, but have no such activity on my account via PayPal. I will contact my financial institution and block any such payment. I will also contact the Colorado Bureau of Investigation and let them know if this person tries to hack my bank account. I also sent a note to PayPal security service and am awaiting a reply. elija

I received the same email stating I purchased a 14K necklace - I purchased no such thing! What is going on? I canceled my PayPal account and all Charges I use on-line.

I received this same email, it is a fairly simple brained and stupid scam. It works by sending an email and programing the server to make the recipient think that it came from an alternative email address. On hotmail, it confirms "sender ID" which will simply state that the email could not be confirmed that it was sent by the sender that it claims.

it is important to report these scams to paypal and keep close track of your account activity. but unless you click on the link in the email, rather than opening a new page and physically typing www.paypal.com, there is nothing that the person can do.

this feature also helps spam emails get past your spam filter. I receive about 4 emails a week that claim to be from my own email account. it makes the email, though advertising viagra or lazer eye surgery, get right into my inbox.

On Wednesday March 14,2007, I received an e-mail that my account has been charged $325.00 for a 14kt yellow and whit gold necklace. I never ordered this item or received it. The shipping info read: Charles Edwards -1015 Pleasant Street - Rehoboth, Maryland 02769. Not even close to where I live. Please correct this and send me proof of credit. Discontinue my PayPal account. Thank you. William B. Jones

THIS EMAIL WAS NOT SENT BY Paypal OR CHARLES EDWARDS. Anyone receiving this should copy the email to Pay pal and if you provided any information contact the Federal Trade Commission and the FBI (www.ic3.gov) as well as your local police department.
