• A scam email to PayPal members warns of invalid account login attempts. The email links to a fake PayPal site where people are asked for personal details. Delete this email if you receive it.

• A Facebook message offers "family financial support" of $50,000 for a shipping fee of $750 through Western Union. Once paid, they ask for $2,500 for taxes. Ignore this one, too.
