It’s been a while since I’ve posted a scam PayPal email – so here is one.
NEVER click on a link in a PayPal email, even if you think it is genuine. ALWAYS enter the address of the PayPal website directly into your browser and login to your account.
This is an obvious scam: a) it addresses me as “Dear PayPal Member” instead of using my registered username, b) it wasn’t sent to my PayPal email address, c)if you point your mouse at the link in the email and look at the web address that is displayed at the bottom left of your screen, you will see that it isn’t the PayPal website at all – it takes you to http://www.canilblackwinners.com.br/UserFiles/Flash/www.paypal.co.uk………….. a page that a hacker has added to an existing, legitimate, site.
