PayPal and their completely useless monthly emails 1


Every month PayPal sends email instructing me to view my recent transactions. There’s Log In Now button that takes me to the PayPal (video playing) homepage.

It’s no scam, the email is genuine, it really comes from PayPal. Unfortunately there are no options┬áto turn of these emails.

paypal-notifications

I tried contacting PayPal few times in the past. I always got confirmation email informing me they will reply within the next 24 hours and that was it, no further message. I guess it’s probably because it’s “handled” by the European branch.
