Big Grin Paypal Users: Don't Get Caught By Phishers
This is actually the link shown in the email I received.

There's a rising trend in Paypal phishing scams. The most recent Paypal spoof I received warns me that my Paypal account has been suspended. I-t asks me to recover complete access to my account by logging into Paypal. I'm sent to a website that looks exactly like the PayPal login page, when I click the link provided in the mail. But the link doesn't go to Paypal. For a second standpoint, people are asked to look at: click.

This is the link shown in the email I received.

It really requires you to some site when you click on the link.

It is broadly speaking maybe not a good idea to select links in an email. If you do, make sure that you are signing in to the Paypal site by taking a look at the target area area of your browser.

Contact your bank or credit card issuers immediately to prevent identity theft, If you have already responded to the email. If you want to check on your Paypal bill status, by hand type PayPal's address in-to your browser and log in normally. To compare more, people might hate to peep at: amharic grammar book - Post Submitters Are Unbelievable 10012.

I was in a position to tell that it was a spoof email since the email began with Dear PayPal member.' Paypal can always address you by your first and last name. They'll never send an email to you and address you as Dear PayPal member or such. I discovered like by searching webpages.

Still another way to tell if a message is from Paypal is to look at the entire header. The email header is your indication of if the email is from Paypal or-not. When looking at the header it should say who sent the e-mail in the first two lines. To check up more, please peep at: Forum Posters for Hire | adrianseda. Case in-the latest spoof email I received it originated in

Return-Path: lester@server.ravin.net

Received: from http://server.ravin.net

If it doesnt say that it passed through Paypals server, then you definitely know the email is a spoof. The FBI is actively investigating these spoofs, therefore please report any suspicious messages by sending them to spoof@paypal.com. You can even file a complaint with the Internet Fraud Complaint Center at http://www1.ifccfbi.gov/strategy/howtofile.asp..
