Paypal Money Request Scam

Any other scammer information: spoofing Paypal

Got an email today saying I had a money request from James Hughey - email originated from [email protected]. I logged into my account to see 3 identical money requests. Knowing they were likely fake, I called the 888 number with google voice and a familiar Indian accent answered the line. I played along for a while, tossed out some choice Hindi obscenities, they dropped the charade and cusseed me out then disconnected.

This is a refund scam – Please put in under the proper category. I did it for you this time. TY.

Want to do AnyDesk, they are pretty disorganized with their scam though.
