There is a growing trend in Paypal phishing scams. The newest Paypal spoof I acquired warns me that my Paypal account is suspended. I-t requires me to recover complete access to my account by logging directly into Paypal. Be taught more on our favorite related link by navigating to TravisKyte4 » Ðîñòèê òóò âñåì çàïðàâëÿåò. When I select the link provided in the mail, I am sent to a web site that looks exactly like the PayPal login page. However the link doesn't visit Paypal.

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

When you click on the link it really requires you to some page.

It is generally perhaps not advisable to click links within an email. Make sure that you're signing into the Paypal site by looking at the target location section of your browser, if you do.

For those who have already replied to the fraudulent e-mail, contact your bank or credit card companies immediately to stop identity theft. Should you desire to check on your Paypal account position, physically type PayPal's address in to your browser and sign in normally.

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

Yet another way to tell if a contact is from Paypal is to go through the full header. The header is your indication of if the email is from Paypal or not. Visit amharic grammar book - Post Submitters Are Unbelievable 10012 to discover the reason for this concept. When looking at the header it should say who sent the e-mail in the first two lines. Case in-the latest spoof 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 machine, then you definitely know the email is just a spoof. Discover more about linklicious by browsing our lofty portfolio. The FBI is actively investigating these spoofs, so please report any suspicious emails by sending them to spoof@paypal.com.
