Please update your account email from PayPal.

by timpears 8 replies
So I got an email from "PayPal" today. It looked important because it was about updating my account. I will paste the email below for your review.
-------------------
Dear PayPal Costumer,
It has come to our attention that your PayPal® account information needs to be updated as part of our continuing commitment to protect your account and to reduce the instance of fraud on our website. If you could please take 5-10 minutes out of your online experience and update your personal records you will not run into any future problems with the online service.
However, failure to update your records will result in account suspension. Please update your records before June 11, 2010
Once you have updated your account records, your PayPal® account activity will not be interrupted and will continue as normal.

I think I took out the link from the 'click here'. But I will paste the actual link below.

So yes, that sure looks like a real PayPal address to me. Sure it does. This guy isn't even good at what he does, trying to screw people.

The email address is "PayPal noreply at netlogmail.com"

I think maybe I should send this to PayPal, but I don't remember the address to send these type email to. If anyone has it, let me know please.

      My rule is never ever click on links in any "bank" emails. If they want something from me then I can go directly to the bank site and figure it out.

    spoof@paypal.com, IIRC.

    Funny e-mail though, Paypal 'Costumer'.

    [BTW, You might want to remove the live link; some people here might end up clicking]

    Edit - Yeah, that's the e-mail: https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/websc...Report-outside

      I got it out that time. I thought I did it before, but I have trouble with the form when I want to format or put in links, and I guess take out links too.

    Actually, Paypal knows your name - they never send an email to you without your name. At least, I always get messages addressed to me, personally, and not as "dear customer".

    Hi,

    One simple rule will keep you safe. Whenever you get an email asking you to go to your account, any account, simply type it in manually. If you get in that habit you wont have any problems.

    Chances are that guy JamesGillmore.com has had his site hacked. I once got hacked (the buggers!) and it was actually Paypal that sent me an email telling me about the script on my site that was phishing their customers. They were actually really nice about it. It was some weird redirect script.... and I was the unsuspecting Joe or James... :0)

    Cheers

    Max

    Ps - Perhaps you should email James and tell him whats happening - Jamesgillmore.com - James Gillmore
