    Paypal

    Every time I use it here, I get several scam letters in my email. Changed passwords, didn't stop. Don't have the problem when I order with it elsewhere.

    Perhaps you should call customer service. Maybe they are not aware and need to tighten their security.

      I haven’t had that problem, but I did find it strange that, when I purchased from M* the other day, it seems to have my Paypal info saved. Usually when I buy something from a website using PayPal, it redirects and I have to sign in, and a I have 2 step identification set up so it texts me a number to type in. I found it odd that M* order went straight through without ever signing in. It’s probably been a year or more since I ordered from them, and I would think that I had changed my password within that time (although time does seem to slip by fast these days so maybe I haven’t - thinking perhaps I should now).

        And THAT might explain the problem. Thanks.

          So, not sure why you're getting spam, but it's more of an internet problem than a paypal problem (your email is probably on a list that gets sold to some new group, they email, then sold to another group that emails, not correlated to your purchasing behavior).

          Our paypal integration uses an authorization key, so you authorize us to bill you via paypal and we store that token, it's incredibly secure. We actually don't pass your email over the wires at all after that first purchase when you authorize us to charge your account.

          I can certainly appreciate how frustrating spam is, I get thousands a day, but thankfully the gmail filter gets most of them, but I can promise you there is no correlation between using paypal on MSQC and any spam surge, we take your security really seriously and have monitoring on our servers, token authorization methods, and more. It would have to be coming from somewhere else, sorry

            Right. Hadn't BEEN anywhere else with it for a couple months. I order yesterday, and get a "Paypal scam email. Ordered a week ago, same deal. So I order from Thrift books last night, and nothing.

              I hear what you're saying, you're missing how spam works though, there is no such nefarious network that only sends you spam when you order from a place. They would harvest your email then sell the list to someone, that's how they function.

              You could say you get a spam email every time the TV show Alf comes on in rerun and have the same correlation and science behind it.

              There's a stats phrase that goes "correlation does not imply causation" which is what you're dealing with here. It's a huge bummer to have your email on some spam list, it physically couldn't have come from here in the way you're describing. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Correl...mply_causation

                      I have nor ordered from MSQC in quite a while (no offense, just trying to not buy fabric unless needed for a specific project). However, I do get these phishing emails about my paypal account and numerous other phishing attempts on a regular basis. We all just need to be very attentive to watching for them and not clicking on links we're not expecting.

                        I haven't used PayPal in over 7 years and still get that same exact spam email at least once a week. It's NOT a result of MSQC!

                        Like you've been told...somewhere at some point, could have been last week or last year or anytime in between, some how your email address got on a list and sold (many times overall) and the spammers have a field day.

                        It happens, it sucks, but it's not MSQC's fault.

                        Don't open the email just delete it and block the sender.

                          I wanted to warn ya'll about a scam that I have been getting in my email. ( nothing to do with MSQ). Do you know how some stores like Home Depot and smaller shops will say how do you want your receipt ? Would you like it printed or sent to your email.
                          I never ever have it sent to my email, I figure they just want my email address.

                          I am getting emails that say
                          From Steve Subject : my receipt. Inside the email it has a link to click on to "view my receipt."
                          Isn't crazy what people will do to scam you and how fast they catch on to new ways of doing stuff.
