Paypal Users: Don't Get Found By Phishers

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



There's a rising trend in Paypal phishing scams. The most recent Paypal spoof I acquired warns me that my Paypal account is stopped. In case people choose to discover extra info on linklicious vs lindexed, we know about heaps of online resources you might consider pursuing. I-t requires me to restore full access to my account by logging directly into Paypal. I am delivered to an internet site that looks just like the PayPal login page, when I click on the link provided in the email. But the link doesn't head to Paypal.

This is actually the link displayed in the email I received.


It actually takes you into a page when you click the link.

It's usually not recommended to click on links within an email. Make sure that you're signing to the Paypal site by looking at the target area section of your browser, if you do. We found out about service like linklicious by browsing webpages.

Contact your bank or credit card companies immediately to stop identity theft, when you yourself have already replied to the fake e-mail. Should you desire to test your Paypal bill status, physically type PayPal's address into 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 can always address you by your first and last name. They will never send you an email and handle you as Dear PayPal member or such.

Another way to tell if a message is from Paypal is always to go through the entire header. The header is the indication of whether the email is from Paypal or-not. When looking at the header it will say who sent the e-mail in the initial two lines. Example within the latest spoof e-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 server, then you definitely know the email is really a spoof. The FBI is actively investigating these spoofs, therefore please report any suspicious e-mails by forwarding them to spoof@paypal.com. You can even file a complaint with the Net Fraud Complaint Center at http://www1.ifccfbi.gov/strategy/howtofile.asp..
