I get the same thing almost weekly from Paypal and eBay. I usually report them but last time I traced it a little, it was from an ISP in France. Boy they really must hate us.

I just got another this morning. They weren't even slick about it. The return email was [email protected] How dumb do they think people are?

lol, I have used it since it first came out, I do daily money transactions with it and I have never been screwed. I have done money exchanges up to 1500 bucks. The only people that can screw you are the people you are doing business with. That is why you should do your homework.
