***Paypal Scam Alert***

Are you a Paypal user? 
Well look out. There is some scammers sending phishing e-mail that actually look authentic, but they are saying that you have purchased an item. 
There will be a charge for whatever the amount (in this example it was 119.00) for shoes from Florsheim Shoes.
Since I know I did not order anything, I know it wasn't mine. 
It also had the "shoes going to an address in Illinois and had the complete "verified" address. that is a BIG RED FLAG!!!!
If you get something like this, DO NOT CLICK ON ANY LINKS! They are phishing (fishing) for YOUR INFO, and will even have an official looking log in for Paypal. If you sign into it, you have given them your log in for Paypal and might as well kiss your life savings good-bye. 
What you need to do :
1. Forward the e-mail to and
2. Report it to Palm Beach Sheriff's Office
    You can fill out an online report, and also forward the email to PBSO or copy and paste it to the report.
3. File a complaint with the Federal Bureau of Investigation at
 PLEASE, I must stress this again, DO NOT CLICK on ANY LINKS on the e-mail. Be sure your anti-virus software is up to date, and REPORT IT to the proper authorities.
Be Safe...... Bob
