Big Grin Paypal Users: Don't Get Caught By Phishers
This is the link shown in the e-mail I received.

Wh... To get alternative viewpoints, please consider checking out: linklicious tutorial.

There is a growing trend in Paypal phishing scams. The most recent Paypal spoof I acquired warns me that my Paypal bill has been suspended. It asks me to restore complete access to my account by logging in to Paypal. I am sent to a web site that looks just like the PayPal login page, when I click the link provided in the email. But the link does not go to Paypal. My mom found out about click by browsing the Internet.

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

When you go through the link it really requires you to your phisers site. For extra information, you may check-out: linklicious pro.

It is broadly speaking not a good idea to click on links within an mail. If you do, make sure that you're signing in to the Paypal website by looking at the address area section of your browser.

When you have already responded to the e-mail, contact your bank or credit card companies immediately to prevent identity theft. Should you desire to check your Paypal bill position, by hand kind PayPal's address in to your browser and log in normally.

I was able to tell that it was a spoof email because the email began with Dear PayPal member.' Paypal will often address you by your first and last name. Dig up further on our related use with - Click here: They will never send an email to you and handle you as Dear PayPal member or such.

Another way to tell if an email is from Paypal would be to go through the full header. The email header can be your indication of whether the email is from Paypal or not. When looking at the header it will say who sent the email in the first two lines. Example in the latest spoof e-mail I received it originated in


Received: from

If it doesnt say that it passed through Paypals machine, then you definitely know the e-mail is really a spoof. The FBI is actively investigating these spoofs, so please report any suspicious messages by sending them to You can also file a complaint with the Net Fraud Complaint Center at
