    Default I just paid 289 for Myst????

    I just got an e-mail "allegedly" from Paypal saying I paid 290 bucks for Myst III. Since I did NOT pay anything for Myst III, as a matter of fact I did not even bid on myst iii, let alone 290 dollars, I assume this is another fraud spam?

    Whoa, what a heart attack though.

    Yep, it's just another phisher trying to trick you. I supposedly got the same game recently, but I allegedly paid $278.99 for it, so I guess I got a deal.

    I don't blame you, that kind of e-mail would freak me out too.

    Ever notice how these kind of e-mails are getting more and more realistic looking. I've even caught myself second guessing some of them.

    Same here.. I even went a little further and changed my web-surfing habits. Now i never click on any links to paypal , i always open a new browser window and then type paypal.com

    It scared the crap out of me too at first, because I had just opened up a new Paypal account just a few days earlier. I was like OMG, who hacked me? Then I looked at it more closely and I was like, oh it's just some loser trying to hack me, that's a relief! It sure had me going for a few seconds though.
