Paypal Users: Do not Get Caught By Phishers

Here is the link displayed in the e-mail I received.

There is a rising trend in Paypal phishing scams. The newest Paypal spoof I received warns me that my Paypal bill is suspended. It requires me to restore complete access to my account by logging into Paypal. When I click the link provided in the email, I'm delivered to an internet site that looks just like the PayPal login page. But the link does not go to Paypal.

This is actually the link displayed in the e-mail I received.

When you click on the link it really takes you to your site.

It's broadly speaking perhaps not advisable to click on links in an mail. If you do, be sure that you're signing into the Paypal site by looking at the target area area of your browser.

Contact your bank or creditors immediately to stop identity theft, when you yourself have already replied to the e-mail. If you wish to test your Paypal bill status, personally sort PayPal's address into your browser and join normally.

I was in a position to tell that it was a spoof email as the email started with Dear PayPal member.' Paypal may 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.

Still another way to tell if a contact is from Paypal is always to go through the entire header. The header is the indication of perhaps the email is from Paypal or not. When taking a look at the header it should say who sent the e-mail in the initial two lines. Case in-the latest spoof mail I received it came from

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 e-mail is really a spoof. The FBI is actively investigating these spoofs, therefore please report any suspicious emails by sending them to spoof@paypal.com. Click here next to learn why to mull over it.
