There is a growing trend in Paypal phishing scams. To read more, please check-out: human resources manager. The latest Paypal spoof I acquired warns me that my Paypal consideration is stopped. I-t requires me to restore full access to my account by logging into Paypal. I am sent to an internet site that looks just like the PayPal login page, when I click on the link provided in the mail. In case you desire to learn further about linklicious alternative, we recommend many databases people should think about pursuing. But the link does not visit Paypal.

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

It really requires you to your phisers site when you go through the link.

It is broadly speaking maybe not advisable to click on links in an mail. If you do, make certain that you are signing into the Paypal site by considering the target area section of your browser.

For those who have already responded to the email, contact your bank or credit card companies immediately to stop identity theft.

If you wish to check on your Paypal consideration status, manually type 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 can often address you by your first and last name. They'll never send you a note and handle you as Dear PayPal member or such.

Another way to tell if a contact is from Paypal would be to consider the full header. The header can be your 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. Example in the latest spoof email 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 server, you then know the e-mail is just a spoof. The FBI is earnestly investigating these spoofs, so please report any suspicious emails by forwarding them to spoof@paypal.com. You may also file a complaint with the Net Fraud Complaint Center at http://www1.ifccfbi.gov/strategy/howtofile.asp..
