    Report bogus email to PayPal? 4th Jan 18 at 11:08 PM
    Not sure if i've one of them phishing emails from 'paypal'. Is there a PayPal address you can forward these things to for them to inspect?

    Says there isn't a valid direct debit instruction between paypal and my bank ending in ####. I've checked my PayPal account and the card on there has been confirmed and there is a direct debit instruction set up. The account listed is an old account that i removed over a month ago.

    One of those click this link emails.

    I tend not to bother reporting as the originating addresses change almost instantly so there is no point. If I take my junk mail filter off I get several a day even to email accounts that have never been associated with either ebay or paypal.

    None of them should even give a moments hesitation to anyone who uses the internet regularly.
