Big Grin  Paypal Users: Don't Get Found By Phishers

There's a growing trend in Paypal phishing scams. The newest Paypal spoof I acquired warns me that my Paypal bill is stopped. I-t asks me to restore complete access to my account by logging in to Paypal. When I click the link provided in the email, I am delivered to an internet site that looks exactly like the PayPal login page. However the link doesn't visit Paypal.

This is the link displayed in the email I received.

It really takes you into a phisers page when you click the link.

It's usually not recommended to click on links in an email. Make sure that you're signing into the Paypal site by looking at the address location section of your browser, if you do.

When you yourself have already responded to the fake mail, contact your bank or creditors immediately to avoid identity theft. Clicking linklicious tutorial certainly provides cautions you should tell your brother. If you wish to check your Paypal consideration position, physically type PayPal's address into your browser and log in 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 a message to you and address you as Dear PayPal member or such.

Still another way to tell if a contact is from Paypal is to go through the entire header. The email header can be your indication of if the email is from Paypal or-not. When looking at the header it will say who sent the email in the first two lines. I learned about human resources manager by searching books in the library. If you believe any thing, you will likely require to read about linklicious.com. Case in the latest spoof email I received it originated from

Return-Path: lester@server.ravin.net

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

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