Online Customer Service.
Please do not reply to this message

The first thing to notice is that it is not address the customer by NAME. This PayPal (and I believe Amazon) will always do. If you EVER receive an email that claims to be from PayPal but addresses you as "Customer" be very wary.
Second, look at what the body of the message is asking you to do. It is asking you, for the sake of your own security, to go in and GIVE THEM your confidential data. Hint. Next time you want to be poor and you're getting ready to enter a bank to make a deposit, just give the money in your hands to the nearest person and be done with it. If, however, you want to utilize the gray matter between your ears and the wisdom God gives you do NOT click on any link in such an email. Instead, go out and log in directly to your account and see if there's anything weird going on. If you can't find anything tell them about this email and send them a copy. They will get right back to you. The email address for reporting this is email@example.com
Third, as Christian writers the money we have belongs to God. We are just custodians of a small portion of it from time to time. So be good stewards of His money and check these things out. Never, ever allow the enemy to come in and "steal, kill and destroy," because that's exactly what he's going to try to do.

Tangerine is the third book in the Shades of Style Novels.
Fans of Pink and Jade will eat up Tangerine, the third book in the cutting-edge Shades of Style series. Jean Guerra, a designer at Garments of Praise design firm, doesn't like surprises. These days though, the unexpected meets her everywhere. Since Jean's return to the church a year ago, her God-encounters occur with increasing frequency, along with thoughts of her husband-the one she vowed to divorce and gave up on long ago. The one nobody at work knows about, not even her best friend, Lily, or her boss, Chenille. But when the designer assigned to work with Jean on a line of men's suits shows up, her heart flips. It's her husband, Nigel Salvador. Jean is finally rendered speechless. Can her bruised heart become whole enough to love again? Or will she remain in the trenches of loneliness forever?
