IF the email that I received is indeed fraudulent/a scam, it is a new type to me re the way that it is set up.
I received an email today supposedly from PayPal re a purchase (see the embedded image). I do have a PayPal account that's been dormant for years.
All the "stuff" in the image has nothing to do with me, at all, to include the 'purchaser', i. e., I do NOT know that individual.
I have no intention of contacting the purchaser; and of course I have no idea how this wound up getting sent to me, i. e., who has my email address.
There was NO file attachment to this email.
In the embedded image, you will see at the very bottom the words "Resolution Center"; it's not obvious in the image, but that's a hot wired link. I did not click on it.
IF there are additional emails, I will create an addendum to this topic. If I receive the halter, i. e., it winds up getting shipped to me, I guess I will have to take up horseback riding.
FYI: there really is a "Tea, SD" (I didn't check the demographics, but it's big enough to have its own school system--SD is a very sparsely populated state); there must me quite a story behind how this place got its name.
Juli is a seemingly real person who has posted photos of her animals and family on FB. So, I'd probably obscure her e-mail on your screen grab just in case.
I can remove the screen grab if you wish and you can put up an obscured one.
I have removed the pic. I was worried that the e-mail might well be accurate and linked to their paypal which has been hacked. Most social media sites can have one or two step authentication. e-mail is usually only one step and then you have to use a mobile phone number or another e-mail to verify a change of password etc. IF the e-mail is linked to the person of that name it makes their online presence much less secure if it's available for others to hack online after seeing the pic online.
