PayPal Unresponsive to Reader's Security Concern
On Oct. 20 I received an email from PayPal to my eBay account, warning of activity that "...seems unusual compared to your normal account activities". My account was frozen until I logged in to confirm my personal info, and several links were provided to log in.
I immediately logged on to my account from an external link to find there was no unauthorized activity.
The initial email was very professional. No tell-tale spelling or grammar mistakes. I was addressed by my eBay ID.
I checked back with PayPal and forwarded the phishing email to the address provided. I was promised an answer within 24-48 hours. A week later, I still have yet to hear from them.
Just a comment on how well PayPal is protecting its clients.
