Just to give everyone a heads up I received a so called email from Paypal today asking for my tax Id number or my social. It followed by telling me this was required for IRS purposes. Two things that bother me is 1. why don't the IRS request this & 2. why Paypal & why not ebay. If the IRS wanted this info now instead of waiting for me to add to my 1040 next month why didn't they contact me. Info from Paypal isn't going to show any income just money transactions for almost anything. SO BEWARE
I have had Paypal for quite a few years. That is a hoax, they are trying to scam you. I never go to a website through an email.
