Has anyone else received a popup stating that there was a breach in the Paperbackswap's  Global Co. credit card transactions and was offered a free credit card score check?

Paperbackswap doesn't have any popups so I hope you didn't click on anything. I'd run your anti virus and maleware software just in case you picked up anything.

What other folks have said -- I don't think it is legit.  You should take appropriate precautions and run your anti-virus and anti-malware scans to be safe.
