    Default Security Warning!

    I'm noticing a lot more fishing attempts going on as of late.

    Please note:
    Under NO circumstances will PayPal, Ebay, your local Bank, Amazon, etc email you and ask you for your account information.

    Under NO circumstances should you fill in the forms, etc.

    Login to your account NORMALLY! (That means Paypal.com or ebay.com, etc, not the nice 123.123.123.123 or whatever address in the email you got)
    Then contact their support normally.

    Be forewarned, be safe.
    For ANY and ALL KenpoTalk issues, please use theContact Us link here or at page bottom right. Do NOT PM me for site support.

    Just to add to this, Paypal will also respond to you. Although a division of E-Bay, Paypal at times has had a bad reputation, so they are all over that kind of thing. Bob hit the nail on the head, anytime you get an e-mail from anyone saying their is a problem with your account, log onto the site like you normally would, never from an e-mailed link, they are far too easy to counterfeit. If there really is a problem, you will likely have a message waiting for you.
    Just because you do something one way, does not mean that everyone else does it that way, or that it is even the correct way.
