They keep suspending my PayPal account!!!

By Jeremy Meltingtallow


What is going on?!! Three to four times a week I get an email notice telling me my PayPal account has been suspended. What? Have I not paid them some undisclosed fee? Did I offend them in some way? Did I — wait, I don’t have a PayPal account.

So my question is: “Who falls for this?” Are there really people out there who see this email, open it, plug in all their personal information, from account number to date of birth, religious affiliation, SS number, mom’s maiden name, whether they’re “Coke” or “Pepsi”, blah blah blah… Apparently so. I keep hoping that after 306,452 tries on me, they will finally give up and leave me alone.
