This morning I checked my email and see two emails indicating they're from PayPal.
Something wasn't 'right' about them so I checked it out further. It appears that when you follow their link, there's another site that looks like PayPal but really isn't. The source code indicates that the page you're eventually taken to is www.dcsteams.com
. I looked at that page and someone could be fooled into thinking it was an actual PayPal screen because it looks almost like it.
Anyway, just wanted y'all to know about this so you don't get yourself into trouble. I've already reported the incident to PayPal.
Here's what the email said:
