    Received following email from an a-hole. Check his Eenglissh and please DON'T click on confirm link.
    Receiving a lot of these emails on all my ids. Wonder why people think that they'll fool us and make us believe that this is sent by PayPal, by using terrible Eenglish and a link to their site.

    What's the problem?

    We recently noticed a pattern of activity in your account that is maybe
    high risk.

    It's usually pretty easy to take care of things like this. Most of the
    time, we just need a little more information about your account.

    Â

    We need your help resolving an issue with your account. To give us time to

    I get these all the time. If it doesn't have your name at the beginning, it's not from them. Also, anytime they email you something like that, you can see it by logging into your account, you don't need to click the link in the email.

    I always ignore these email but this one is funny (check his English and the way he wrote this email) that's why I posted it here.

    This is nothing. I actually got an email from "fake paypal" saying your account is limited and the funny thing is I never registered that email with paypal. LOL! Thank god i didn't fall for that as these are phishing mails and can easily steal your username and password...

    lol, I get these every once in a while :D

    I always open them but never click on the links.

    And as said above, you can see everything from your account.


    I'm just sad I haven't gotten a Nigerian prince to contact me in a while :( Where did they all go! lmao :D

    This is not a new mail mate. If I read all the mail I would be the richest person in world because Nigerien king need to deposit his money to my account all the time.
