    We just received a phone call about my paypal account...the funny thing is I don't have a paypal account my husband does and the guy said he wanted to know if I wanted to make a one time payment on my outstanding balance of $534. We haven't used paypal in years, we used to do ebay.

    :lolup:

    Our account is $0.00

    Be careful everyone.

    Uhhhh

    I'd be more worried about how he got your phone number. Or were they just picking names out of a phonebook? lol

    If it was me, I would have went and got my account number, made up numbers and strung him along.

    You know, sorta like Bryan did with the 419 scammer :D

    DAMN, that would have been priceless!!! my husband was on the phone and the last thing the guy said to him before he hung up was are you still at P.O. Box bla bla bla....lmao...we never had a P.O. Box in our lives!

    I'm not worried about the phone number thing, like I said I have never had a paypal account, and they asked for me by name. We get weird phone calls all the time, we also get one piece of mail for our town Travel Agent and when we call certain people that same Travel Agent name comes up on certain peoples caller ID...how strange is that?

    Just curious:

    Whose name is your number listed under in the phone book? Yours or your husbands?

    Did the caller ID show anything or was it blocked? :D

    Neither....we are unlisted.

    The number on our caller ID from "paypal" said private with no number (we have a name and number that shows up normally, unless it's private)

    Ohhhhhhhh, I forgot!!!

    When my husband had the paypal account it was a different phone number.


    I just wanted to warn everyone in case they get a similar phone call, you never know, I see people fall for this stuff all the time.

    It's usually the elderly that fall for these scams, but not in this case. :D

    Smart woman! I sure hope I'm still as sharp as her when I'm her age.
