    Guys, recently, there was some unauthorized transactions from my paypal acc, I got it sorted by changing passwords and stuff.

    Now I got this email, it is legit? Has anyone got this after their account got reinstate after limitation.



    Please tell me if this is for real??

    Also the email was sent via paypal.feedback@echosurvey.com

    I know a lot of companies use these surveys but they NEVER ask for any account details within the survey as there is normally an identifyer wtihin the URL and then you just get asked questions and rate them out of 5 or something.

    It is just a request for feedback so just ignore it or maybe forward the email to paypal support and ask if it is legit.

    I just recently took some surveys from pay pal but it was like a random survey though asking if I wanted to get a credit loan from pay pal, I think your survey could be somewhat legit if it did arrive right after your account reinstatement, I had this happen to me when I was out of the country and had multiple surveys. I just called up payal though to verify they have a 80o number just go into your account and inquire

    I had taken a survey from paypal but the link you got doesn't seem to be legit.

    Similar thing is I was also given to fill up the survey immediately after account was reinstated.
    The email contained mine full name (not just first name or last name). A link was provided to unsubscribe from such letters etc.
    Btw I was given this link to fill up survey. I removed the last part from below link cuz I believe it was just survey number or something like that.

    Hope it helps!
