Please update your account email from PayPal.

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.

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"

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.

    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:

      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".

    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 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)



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

    1. Lack Of Strategy Many of the tools available to Internet marketers are either cheap or free. As a result, many new marketers are tempted to use them all at once. Successful Internet marketers begin with a strategy that identifies the goals of a campaign, the target audience and other key planning elements. Only then do they choose their tactics. Remember: tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat.

    Hopefully someone can enlighten me on something that I'm confused about it. So when it comes to CPM, from an advertisers point-of-view, they pay for every 1,000 impressions of their ad. Now their ad is viewed on multiple sites. So let's say it's viewed 100 times on Site A, 200 times on site B, 300 times on site C, and 400 times on site D. Once that happens, the advertiser pays. Correct me if I'm wrong, but that is how that works? From the perspective of a publisher is where I'm more confused. So if I'm displaying CPM ads on my site, am I paid everytime the ad is viewed on my site or does the ad have to be displayed 1,000 times on my site before I get paid?

    When people think of the term copywriter they will often imagine someone sitting at home or at a caf, tapping away at a laptop and churning out good copy for their immediate employer whether it be a one-off project or a long-standing relationship between a publication (online or print) and the copywriter. Now that might often be correct, but there are different types of copywriters out there. Lets have a look at the main types.

    In this online age, being a copywriter is fast becoming a viable means of earning an income, sometimes even from the comfort of your own home. It is one of the few industries today where further education (usually a tertiary qualification, such as a degree in journalism or marketing) is not the be all and end all of being hired as a copywriter, although it can be handy. More importantly however, is being a capable and creative writer; one who can demonstrate ability and the right attitude to prospective employers. Below are a few basic but helpful tips for any burgeoning copywriters out there.

    Anyone who's read any of my recent posts will know that my focus on the moment is optimising my site and doing all I can to improve my ranking with the search engines. It's something I, mistakenly, didn't put as a priority when I first started and now I'm feeling the effects of that. But we live and learn and I'm happy to say I'm learning pretty darn quickly at the moment! Anyway I've got someone writing a series of blogs for me which are going to help with having regularly updated content, and I've been doing a bit of research on how to boost the ranking if they're just uploaded to my regular Wordpress site. I feel like I've wasted quite a lot of crucial time with this so I'm going hell for leather on it now.
