    I dont even have a paypal account. I received two emails saying I had purchased from this jewelry company a gold necklace. I immediately went frantic and calling my bank was given their risk operations number to call the following day.

    This type of scam is the worse kind of thing to happen to ordinary working people.

    I am going to contact even yahoo about this type of abuse.

    I received this spam today and was also alarmed. But you can't really blame yahoo. I checked the message again, and it usually says "this message has been verified by yahoo as coming from paypal" (or something to that effect) and this message didn't say that. I guess yahoo probably should have blocked it, but this message did not say "verified," so it didn't pass as legit by yahoo. Yahoo is not to blame. It's the people who perpetrated this scam who are to blame.

    This message came to me too, I sent it on to paypal as a fraudulent email. I also became concerned with my credit card being charged, but after reading the other posts, I am going to wait to see if it shows up on my credit account. Sad times that we have to watch everything we do.

    I received exactly the same email and reported it to paypal. I really hope that they will find who originated this email and press charges.

    That's not from, that's just a phishing letter. If you click the link, you can cheerfully give a bunch of scammers in Nigeria your credit card information or PayPal password.

    Stefan is correct this is a phishing letter and should not be listed in the Complaints section. It would be impossible for, along with millions of businesses online, to control the phishing scams that circulate daily through the vast web vortex.

    I own and there was a scammer that coppied the name of this site and people who bought items at never realized the difference of the .com versus the .net. They bought items on .net but the website proclaimed it was a .com site. 3 years later this scammer was never found and my reputation is still compromised! I can be reached at [email protected]
