This is a service notification from PayPal regarding important to your accounts or services. 1

This, so called, notification from Paypal has some obvious giveaways that it’s a fake.  One – it addresses me as “Dear Customer” and doesn’t use my registered Paypal identity.  Two – if you click on the link in the email you are taken to http:// mail.g7g.sk/ssl128.site/cgi-bin/index.php……….. which is NOT the paypal website.

NEVER click on a link in an email that claims to come from Paypal – even if you think it might be genuine.  ALWAYS enter the Paypal web address directly into your browser.  I there is a problem with your account you will see it after you have logged in to the genuine site.

    Poor English is a clue also. “we have decided to limitate your account on our ongoing effort” and “was recently login” Haven’t these scammers ever heard of Google translate?
