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


There is a growing trend in Paypal phishing scams. The latest Paypal spoof I received warns me that my Paypal consideration is suspended. I-t requires me to recover complete access to my account by logging into Paypal. When I select the link provided in the email, I'm delivered to a web site that looks just like the PayPal login page. Discover further about by navigating to our pushing portfolio. However the link doesn't visit Paypal.

This is the link displayed in the email I received.

It actually takes you to a page when you click on the link.

It's usually maybe not a good idea to click on links within an mail. Make sure that you are signing to the Paypal website by looking at the target area section of your browser, if you do.

For those who have already replied to the deceptive email, contact your bank or credit card issuers immediately to stop identity theft. Should you desire to check your Paypal bill status, physically typ-e PayPal's address into your browser and join normally.

I was able to tell that it was a spoof email since the email started with Dear PayPal member.' Paypal may often address you by your first and last name. They will never send you a note and handle you as Dear PayPal member or such.

Still another way to tell if a message is from Paypal is to consider the full header. The email header can be your indication of perhaps the email is from Paypal or-not. To explore additional information, please consider checking out: get When taking a look at the header it should say who sent the email in the initial two lines.

If it doesnt say that it passed through Paypals host, then you definitely know the email is really a spoof.
