Why did I receive an email saying my PayPal email had been changed?

« Return to PayPal Payments Standard Shopping Cart

If you receive an email message from us that looks like this:

Subject: Your E-junkie PayPal email changed

Your E-junkie PayPal email has been successfully changed from this@domain.com to that@hostname.net.

This change was requested from IP Address


That message is just confirming that you have added or changed a PayPal email setting in your E-junkie profile, so you can now receive payments in the PayPal account with the newer email specified.

If you ever receive a message like that informing you of a change you did not make, regarding a new PayPal email that is not your own, that would indicate your E-junkie account had been hacked into, in order to redirect future payments to the new and unfamiliar PayPal Email. In that case, you should immediately log into your account to change the setting back and also change the password on at least your E-junkie account.

If you were unable to log into E-junkie to do this and needed to reset your password to get in, that indicates the hacker probably first hacked your email account in order to use our Forgot Password routine to gain access to your E-junkie account; in this case, you should also change the password for that email account as well.
