Just got this email, and the $90 to my PayPal account with the memo “phone for feb”

Oh man oh man! I’m hoping you are a nice reasonable person! I just paid you $90.00 on paypal instead of my bosses. They have almost the same email. Could you please please please let me have it back?
Your slightly panicking new friend,
Nancy


My email is the title of a lightning bolt album and I find it hard to believe it’s similar to anyone’s professional address

maybe tell nancy you're little worried about it being a scam and ask how she managed to send it to your seemingly random email address?

they could be sending it from a bank account which doesn't have the money in it, ACH transactions usually take a few days to process but I don't know how Paypal works with it. $90 seems low for a scam though

Apparently I can hit the “Refund” button to take care of this and I don’t see how that could backfire on me

what infuriates me about roger is that he's an unemployed game developer that doesn't get his dog fixed, they have like 16 puppies and he's ecstatic. then he wants to adopt like 90 more?? that's just not sustainable

the cost to raise 101 Dalmatians is actually staggering. i did the math once and it was like high five figures. fuck roger
