Big Grin Paypal Users: Do not Get Caught By Phishers

There is a growing trend in Paypal phishing scams. Be taught further on this partner web site - Click here: amharic grammar book - Post Submitters Are Unbelievable 10012. The latest Paypal spoof I received warns me that my Paypal account has been stopped. I-t asks me to restore complete access to my account by logging into Paypal. When I click the link provided in the email, I am sent to an internet site that looks exactly like the PayPal login page. However the link doesn't visit Paypal. Identify more about is linklicious good by browsing our great link.

This is the link displayed in the email I received.

It actually takes you to some phisers site when you click on the link. Visiting linklicious probably provides warnings you might give to your uncle.

It's usually perhaps not a good idea to select links within an email. Make sure that you are signing in to the Paypal website by considering the address area area of your browser, if you do.

When you yourself have already responded to the mail, contact your bank or credit card companies immediately to prevent identity theft. If you want to check your Paypal account position, physically sort PayPal's address into your browser and log-in normally.

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

Yet another way to tell if an email is from Paypal is to consider the full header. The email header is your indication of if the email is from Paypal or-not. When taking a look at the header it should say who sent the email in the very first two lines. Case in the latest spoof e-mail 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 host, you then know the email is a spoof. The FBI is actively investigating these spoofs, so please report any suspicious e-mails by sending them to spoof@paypal.com. You can also file a complaint with the Net Fraud Complaint Center at http://www1.ifccfbi.gov/strategy/howtofile.asp..
