This morning I received an invoice from WHO (all very authentic looking) for $50.00 in my PayPal account. Be aware that this is a scam and make sure you cancel the invoice if this happens to you
Unfortunately, PayPal CS is barely operating because of the virus, so there is no response from any official source. I was able to cancel the invoice, but some people (on the PP community) have not been so lucky.
These scammers are operating everywhere on all media, so just be cautious. The WHO site has warned against these scammers too.

But as far as I know, invoices don't automatically get paid do they? The PP account holder has to manually pay the invoice...
I don't think they are automatically paid, but you still have to manually cancel them.
