    I received an email from Hubpages saying that they tried to pay me my earnings to my paypal account but couldn't (just said that attempt to pay failed).  Does anybody have (or has anyone had) a similar problem?  What do you think is the problem?  I have received payment from Hubpages once before (years ago, LOL) with no problems, so I don't know if something's changed.  I use Paypal to pay for stuff all the time and I never had any problems PAYING! 

    Thanks for any help/info!

      Go into your account settings and make sure the email associated with your PayPal account is correct smile

      This is kind of a toughie. Only thing I can think of is that maybe it's a fake email. Seems unlikely, and I've never gotten an email that was a fake HP email, but I did recently get a fake one masquerading as paypal. It looked totally legitimate and something didn't seem right about it and I looked it up on the Net and it was a scam; claiming that a "suspicious login" occurred on my paypal and tried to get me to click a link to login to unlock my account. Only problem is, I'd recently logged into my paypal with no problem, so I knew something was fishy.

      Anyway, I kind of doubt that this is the problem with the email you received. I'm thinking your best bet is to email Hubpages and ask them.
