I received an email from "PayPal" today- looked legit. Said it was from the billing dept. I connected to the link and they asked for verification of personal info, including credit card #'s. Then I noticed there was no secure site little padlock and the web address wasn't paypal. THIS IS A SCAM. DO NOT REPLY!!
