Paypal Phishing Scam
Not too sure why I seem to be the target of all this shit, maybe because i pay a lot of atention, not too sure.
Anyways please check out the following screenshots from my computer. I got a paypal notification in my "junk email account" that told me of unusual activity, and that I needed to follow a link to verify some info. (PIC 1)
(PIC 2) You'll see the login screen....this is a copy of the EXACT paypal login, and even the address will fool most people. However the thing that is missing is the secure ID tag at the bottom of the screen. (the little icon that looks like a lock)
(PIC 3) You'll see a fake email address and bogus password I puit in there that obviously is not my real email addy. AND IT WORKS!
(PIC 4) Your taken to a screnn that allows you to put your VISA card number and all the other shit they need to fuck you over!
Please pass this around....ANYONE that has paypal accounts NEED to klnow of this scam!
Sorry for the picture size guys, my resolution is quite high. I 'd fix it but I'm out of time this am. I have reported this to Paypal fraud department.
ummm....paypal will not send u any email...they make that clear..
Actually, Paypal will email you for different reasons but will not ask you for sensitive information.

NEVER OPEN A LINK FROM ANY PAYPAL EMAILS
ALWAYS OPEN A NEW BROWSER AND LOG IN TO PAYPAL MANUALLY.
If you want to play around with those fake emails, I do something like that:
User name: eat shit
and it is amazing that it logs in perfectly (this is not my username and password by the way) And I just go on and write profanity in all the spaces.
go on there and use the info you see in credit card ads. robert s whatever, 4519 123 456 789.
since they are phishing for quantity, i bet they don't filter out bogus card numbers. when they try to use that number, it could come back flagged!
