Yes this is a popular email scam that has worked in the past. I myself received on these today too.You can report the IP to Paypal, I'm sure they would love to know it (if they don't already).I'm moving this to the Hangar Forum so everyone can see it. Thanks for the post.http://saltydogfly2.avsim.net/images/avsim_sig.jpg"We are the music makers, and we are the dreamers of dreams."

Good alert Satchmo...many forum members have used Paypal. I was sent five of these in the course of a week a few weeks back. Since I never have used Paypal, it was easy to understand what a scam it was. I posted a similar alert here several weeks back, and it's good to see a reminder once in a while...-John
