Many people use online payment systems like PayPal as a way to send payments online. But a new scam is spreading via e-mail that claims to come from PayPal and says the recipient's account needs "reactivating." It requests personal information (Social Security number, PayPal password, etc.). Advice: Legitimate companies never ask for your password or personal info in an unsolicited e-mail. If you doubt any e-mail's legitimacy, call or e-mail the company with your question. For details on the PayPal scam, see "What's New" at
