My paypal email address has just been changed?
« on: September 14, 2011, 01:18:51 pm »
My paypal email address has just changed and I have a payment coming up but I tried to edit my paypal email in my account page and it won't let me. Will the payments be sent to my old paypal email address? I opened a support ticket as well.

Whatever email you gave FC, it would go to that one.

I would call paypal also so they can look into it for you.

definitely get a hold of paypal.  If there are issues with paypal they are the ones to deal with it directly.  Especially if hacking is involved.
End the suffering!  Get your cats - and all strays and ferals - spayed and neutered!

I hope very much you weren't phished.

That's a pretty common phishing scam, to send someone an email saying, "You've changed your PayPal email" with a link to verify. When people click on the link in the email, they're brought to a login page that looks exactly like PayPal's, some even going so far as to replicate the full account info page. The only difference is, you can't change the information in there. But what they've done is capture the real password of the paypal holder's account.

You need to contact PayPal ASAP to double check this. Their phone and hours from their customer support page are below.

I just had something happen with my paypal card, someone got hold of the number and charged a lot to it.  Paypal was fast on it.  They called me then I called them.  Now just waiting on a new card.  I would call paypal.  They are good.

I think what piggyytay is trying to say is that he/she changed his/her paypal account email address. Now he/she is trying to change the email on fusioncash and it's not letting him/her.  ;) It's not letting you change it because you have a payment pending. Any other time you would be able to change it from the account information page. My guess is that your payment will try to be made to your paypal account with your old email address, when it doesn't associate that email address with a paypal account it will be put back in your fusioncash account. You should definitely see if support can change your email address on your pending payment though. Either that or change your paypal email back to your old one until your payment processes.  :dontknow:

Aha! Kingreyam - Thanks for clearing that up! I was so worried for him/her! There's so much fraud online, and some phishers are really talented in making pages that look identical to banking sites, paypal, email, etc.
