How to become a Paypal millionaire

There’s a PayPal scam going around on Twitter at the moment that claims to be offering money to those that retweet a tweet:

It’s a complete and utter joke, yet there are hundreds of replies with people saying “thanks for the money” and “wow, I can pay off my mortgage now!” Lots of people I follow are believing it too.

There’s no way this is legitimate - PayPal would shut this off almost immediately. I’ve been suspended for moving $100 around, so I doubt this person could shift $100K out of their “dad’s” account for fun. My current suspicion is that this is an elaborate scam that involves a number of this person’s friends - or a bunch of bots.

Despite what you might believe, this whole thing is a scam. Perhaps an elaborately pulled off one, but this is just a person that has edited their browser’s DOM using the Chrome inspector tools, taken a shitty screenshot on their phone and then put it online.

Yet somehow, it’s gone viral. Sigh.

Anywho, if you too want to be a PayPal millionaire, follow these steps:

1) Log in to Paypal

2) Right click on your balance and hit “inspect element”

3) Open the “balance” span by clicking the right-facing arrow

4) Double click on the dollar value

5) Type whatever the hell you want

6) Take a screenshot with your phone!

7) Lucky you! You’re a millionaire!
