Pay Pal Legal Action ?

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:

    Good Co ,

    Not sure if you are aware of this :
    From http://www.hoax-slayer.com/paypal-class-action.html

    Considering the ARRSE shop and Donations all operate via PayPal, thought you might wish to be aware ?

    Thanks GM. I'm normally very dubious of anything like this, but must admit to almost falling foul of a very good one - the email led to a complete copy of the paypal site, only funnily enough called www.paypal.zz or similar. I imagine the authors get a lot of success from this sort of thing as there are people out there more gullible than me although BCO may dispute that.

    Good Co,

    yup,okay. The point to note is that whilst there are a lot of scams flying around the web, as HoaxSlayersite says:
    Despite what DarkBlue has amplified, I'm guessing that some ARRSE users may well have been emailed regarding this Class Action and, being the suspicious clicked-on barstewards most are, have ditched it.

    End of Public Service Broadcast !

  5. It says accounts had a deposit made to them for payment, but account holders had to apply.

    I don't remember ever hearing about this from Pay Pal, despite them apparently making their 'best effort' to contact people.
