In the past I have folks make payment to me through my PayPal button located on the right side of this blog….works great and encrypted. I actually prefer that method of payment. Imagine my surprise when I logged into my Microsoft Outlook email that stated you received funds..uh huh! Being that I have received payment through the PayPal system in the past I knew this was a phish email. The button on this blog is not simply for show nor decoration…I strongly advise anyone who receives a phishing email from a scam artist to not open the links in your email. Typically you will received a notification from PayPal when an deposit is made into your PayPal account. Notice the email address ending has co.uk at the end of it….not an PayPal email address.
I logged directly into my PayPal account and noticed it was empty and that made me realized someone was perhaps sending phishing email to unwise owners of an Paypal accounts…uh huh!
If you own an PayPal account click on the security button to get this screen.
Send the phishing email to the spoof email address and PayPal will handle the rest.
