I already c= ancelled my paypal account, but they're going to check this out. The fact that I use a dedicated Sneak-email ebay address, means there are very few people who could know that that address is associated with me/ebay/paypal (I made less than five purchases with paypal to date). So it did not come to me 'out of the blue'. I told this to paypal, and forwarded the email to them. --- "Mike mikebike-at-telus.net |24hoursupport@xxxxxxxxxxxxx|" &= lt;...> wrote: From: "Mike mikebike-at-telus.net |24hoursupport@f= reelists.org|" <...> Date: Mon, 10 Jan 2005 15:38:31 -0800 To: = ........................
