Spam of the week


Well it's been a few weeks, hmm, maybe a month since I've had any phish, but one got through. These idiots were trying to claim that something was messed up with my paypal account. Yeah, right I think not! I've seen ones like this before but maybe you have not. If you ever get an email like this please forward it to spoof@paypal.com they will follow up chasing these scumbags down. Or if you don't feel safe in doing that just delete it.

So how do I know it's SPAM? One, I had recently had used paypal when I got my iPod. Then, when I placed my cursor over the link that was at the bottom this is what I saw"http://www.zhotelara.com/upload/paypal.com/"(WARNING: DO NOT FOLLOW THIS LINK) , not http://www.paypal.com which is what it should have been. You may think that you are resolving a problem where in reality these thugs just want your paypal account information. So don't be take in either delete it and/or forward it to Paypal. If you are worried about this being a valid email. Then open a new browser and go to the site using your own links or just type it in the bar. At the bottom there are some links to more information regarding phishing and identity theft.
