Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Got this today claiming that I had paid a couple of hundred dollars to Joe Bloggs for something or other...

    ...funny thing is, I don't even have a paypal account!! Those that do though could be caught out by it!!

  2. What they want you to do, is go i havent bought anything, and you then click on the link they have so helpfully provided. Having entered your paypal details, they go thank you very much and riffle it. DONT reply to this email.
  3. I didn't - I knew it was a load of crap because, as I said, I don't have a paypal account!!
  4. Yes, but the warning isnt just for you
  5. any problems with fraudulent or suspected fraudulent PayPal emailings, just forward them to and they will confirm/deny the posting as appropriate.
  6. A genuine Paypal E-mail will ALWAYS address you by your correct name.

    It will never be addressed to: Dear Paypal Member..
