Paypal cant confirm or deny e-mail

By yarcata ·
I forwarded a questionalble paypal e-mail to spoof@paypal.com they responded with, "unable to determine whether this e-mail came from paypal or not you might try e-bay." Are these people that bad or the crooks that good or am I just missing something here? How about SEC R14

I would first thing log into Pay Pal and change your Password just to be on the safe side of things.

Sometimes if you created your Pay Pal account through E-Bay, E-Bay will send you e-mails that are not directly connected to Pay Pal hence the suggestion to send on the e-mail in question to E-Bay.

It's not that the hackers are getting so good but when you have a couple of different companies involved it's always possible that something slips between the cracks. If you responded to this E-Mail I would immediately change your Password at Pay Pal and probably remove any related Credit Card account details unless you need then and are a high volume user of Pay Pal.

If you need to have a constant Credit Card listing it might be a good idea to contact your credit card provider and ask them to keep an eye on unusual transactions. Personally I would just say something along the lines of I seem to have mislaid my Credit Card can you issue me a new one? That way you'll get a different number and date so any data that was gained previously is no longer up to date and any transaction will be considered as Illegal and not your responsibility.
