Re: I think I'm getting scammed...help
The freaky part is that security experts say "If you receive an e-mail that addresses you as 'Dear PayPal/eBay User/Account Holder' to delete and report the sender." Legit e-mail will address you by name. But now the scam e-mails come addressing you by name (I, too, get one a week). If you click on the link and enter a random name and password, it will usher you right thru, no questions asked. It only trips up when you enter a bogus credit card number.
In short, NEVER click on the link in an e-mail. Like Conq said, go directly to the site in question (even open a different browser window) if you need to check your account. Then dump those cookies!
