    Dear friends,

    So a few minutes ago, out of blue I receive a notification e-mail from a total stranger that he's deposited $0.10 in my Paypal account.

    As I have no idea why he's being so kind to deposit a few cents in my Paypal I avoid clicking the link contained in the e-mail, but open a separate window and key in Paypal url.

    I log in and, truly enough, his transaction is there. But it's $0.10 deposit and -$0.10 processing fee, so my net gain is zero.

    So my apparently kind friend turns out to be offering no free lunch. Still, as I have no idea who he is I am still wondering what is the game going on...

    Any ideas please?

    Could be he is testing something. Have you ever heard of stuff like this before? Could be some blackhat paypal trick is cooking somewhere.

    cant say that i have heard of anything like this before. hard to see the logic behind this though. maybe you could do a search for something like "random funds in paypal account" or something along those lines
