I just got another one and it looks very authentic. It says that my account has been suspended because a third party tried to access it and to click a link to reactivate the account. My first clue that something was wrong? I've never used paypal! I forwarded it to paypal and they e-mailed back that it was indeed phishing and they are working to disable it. If you get one, forward it to spoof@paypal.com and delete it. Bastards.:computer:

I missed that, thanks. I still like to order stuff over the phone or by sending a check but I guess now if someone gets a hold of your check they can empty your bank account. At least they wouldn't get much out of mine! I was mail ordering stuff before they invented the internet and just feel better doing it the old way.

yes!, cash rules. Probably more important now then ever.

What would happen if every one wanted gold now? That would be funny........
