SCAM – Customer service numbers are easy to spoof, It could be a scam.

When George Hart got an email saying there’d been fraudulent activity on his PayPal account, the 76-year-old knew better than to take the message’s word for it.

So he logged onto his PayPal account, and there the supposed charge was again: $699.99 to a vendor he’d never heard of. An accompanying message said the charge would be posted to his account if he didn’t call customer service in the next 24 hours. So he called the number in the message.
