One quick tip when it comes to PayPal, make sure that of course you have a secured password, you're only accessing really PayPal from one IP address, that IP address will keep you the most secure. Because when PayPal sees a consistent record of you opening your account from one main area, even if it's just your phone, they recognize the MAC address on that phone. And that's something that's imprinted inside the hardware. Usually it's a it's it's somewhat software, you can rewrite it, but it's it's a little bit more complicated. That being said, the average layperson keeps logging into the account with one device that's going to be recognized and create trust system so that any transactions that may occur out of the regular, it's open from a new IP address, a new area money sent, they'll put a hold, and then they'll ask you for a verification kind of like a cool credit card company would do.

They would just ask you, hey, are these transactions legitimate? We wanted to make sure this is our fraud detection department. And that's kind of what helps you, as well as not sending any payments via a gift. That's basically the 101 of a scammer. a scammer will always ask for their money as a gift. If you have to pay as a gift.

Don't even make the transaction just avoid business. I don't care how good or nice it seems, or even how genuine the person is. If they ask us a gift, you can kiss your money goodbye. They don't have to do anything, you'll never get it back. And that's the way that you avoid most scams when it comes to paypal and especially when it comes to getting hacked.
