that was a phising right ?
This is a very very very very very extreeeeeeeemly old scam. It's been around since before paypal was even created [sarcasm]. I think everyone has got at least a few thousand of them emails by now. I get about a hundred a day lol. As a matter of fact, I got those messages before I ever had a paypal account.
Yes The page that link leads to it's a fake PAYPAL PAGE ... I guess that if you introduce your email and pass you will have your account compromised .
I usually just mess with them, and play along. I put in fake information to frustrate them a little bit.
reminds me of a nigerian flag
common scammer countries are nigeria , us samoa , india .. etc sorry
I often get these types of email 2-3 times every week and It's been automatically flagged as a SPAM by Gmail.
Very true and it is quite frequent also.
I never got that email...however, spam are about 100s a day!
I haven't got anything yet from paypal or paypal scams.
I actually think I got that, but with any sensitive login page I just go to the direct link via a new web page.
This scam has been around so long I do not even see how it is lucrative for
the person scamming. Oh well just always remember to carefully check the
email that sent it.
Thanks for the update bro. These days they are becoming very common. I wonder how paypal reacts to these complaints.
LOL I get about 5 of these every day... must be working or they would not still be doing it after all these years.
"If you could please take 5-10 minutes out of your time and update your personal records
you will not run into any future problems with the online service."
This line right here would have set off alarms like crazy to me.
I've been getting these emails even before I had a paypal account. :spank:
