Paypal Users: Do not Get Found By Phishers
Here is the link displayed in the email I received.

There is a rising trend in Paypal phishing scams. The newest Paypal spoof I received warns me that my Paypal bill has been suspended. If people need to be taught new info on close remove frame, there are heaps of online resources people might think about investigating. I-t asks me to restore full access to my account by logging into Paypal. When I click the link provided in the mail, I'm delivered to a website that looks just like the PayPal login page. However the link doesn't visit Paypal.

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

When you click the link it really requires you to a phisers page. In case you want to be taught supplementary resources about link emperor google, there are thousands of online resources people could investigate.

It is broadly speaking maybe not advisable to select links within an email. If you do, be sure that you're signing to the Paypal website by considering the target location part of your browser.

In case you have already replied to the fraudulent email, contact your bank or creditors immediately to stop identity theft. If you wish to check your Paypal account position, manually type PayPal's address into your browser and log in normally.

I was able to tell that it was a spoof email since the email began with Dear PayPal member.' Paypal can always address you by your first and last name. They'll never send an email to you and address you as Dear PayPal member or such.

Yet another way to tell if an email is from Paypal is to consider the entire header. The header is the indication of whether the email is from Paypal or-not. When taking a look 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 came from

Return-Path: lester@server.ravin.net

Received: from server.ravin.net

If it doesnt say that it passed through Paypals host, then you know the e-mail is really a spoof. The FBI is actively investigating these spoofs, therefore please report any suspicious emails by forwarding them to spoof@paypal.com. If you are interested in food, you will probably want to check up about linkemperor. You can also file a complaint with the Web Fraud Complaint Center at http://www1.ifccfbi.gov/strategy/howtofile.asp..
