I got a legitimate Paypal Money Request from Cris Carriaga (email@example.com) today. It was for $5 and the "details" said "Book Donation."
I have no idea who this person is.
I wrote back:
Why do you want my money?
I received a response today, as well:
It is only for donation
our library needs new books
hope you donate
I guess he thought I would just pay it out without asking. I wonder how well that one is working...
