Save Yourself From Falling Into PayPal Scam

Obviously that was fake email, but I'm sure many people out there can fall in the trap and lose tones of money.  Easy way to avoid this is not to click on any link this email contains. You can clearly see some gibberish after, and yes got got it right it doesn't spell the paypal in the right way. Instead they used capital "I", if you write capital I in the address bar it will look like lower class "l". Here are some official advice from PayPal.

You’ll know that an email is not from PayPal when:

  • It begins with a generic greeting like ‘Dear user’ or ‘Hello, PayPal member.’ We'll always begin with your first and last name or the business name on your PayPal account.
  • It asks for financial and other personal information. Our emails will never ask for your bank account number, debit or credit card number etc. We'll never ask for your full name, your account password, or the answers to your PayPal security questions in an email.
  • It asks you to provide the tracking number of a dispatched item, before you've received the payment into your PayPal account.
  • It includes a software update to install on your computer.

And below is the link which they've hidden in the log in button. Never Ever Visit it. Unless you're stupid or try to be too clever.
