That message just came from PayPal this morning.

I thought it might be a phishing attempt, so I checked my PayPal account(going there from my bookmarks, not from the links in the email) and sure enough, there was a whopping penny sent to me from GoDaddy.

I’m headed out the door shortly so I’ll have to check into this a little further later today and update this post, but it’s just so weird.

I just wanted to see if anyone received this windfall as well, lol.

Update 4/12/18:

🙂  I never did get around to checking into that awesome penny payment, but this morning I just received a nickel, woohoo. 😀

I couldn’t really find an explanation that made sense to my situation and I don’t feel like bothering with GoDaddy support, so it’s still somewhat of a mystery to me.

However, here are a couple threads from 2014 that could explain any mystery payments someone else has received from GoDaddy:  Godaddy sent me $19.90. What does it mean? and Mysterious refunds from GoDaddy explained

Good luck.
