Web Conferencing Readers - So What Do We Do with the PAYPAL SPAMMER
From: "Paypal Security"
Dear valued PayPal® member,
Due to recent fraudulent transactions, we have issued the following security requirements.
It has come to our (attion)**Spelling Mistake**, that 98% of all fraudulent transactions are caused by members using stolen credit cards to purchase or sell non existant items. Thus we require our members to add a (Debit/Check card)**Ding Ding Ding are your Alarm Bells going off Yet???** to their billing records as part of our continuing commitment to protect your account and to reduce the instance of fraud on our website. Your Debit/Check card will only be used to identify you. **YEAH RIGHT!!!** If you could please take 5-10 minutes out of your online experience and renew your records you will not run into any future problems with the PayPal® service. However, failure to confirm your records will result in your account suspension.**All Paypal Accounts Earn Good Money For Paypal, Why Suspend Them?**
We are requesting this information to verify and protect your identity. Federal regulations require all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record identification from all persons opening new accounts or obtaining ongoing payment services. This is in order to prevent the use of the U.S. banking system in terrorist and other illegal activity. For these reasons, PayPal® will utilize services provided by various credit reporting agencies to verify the information you submit to us. **Did Paypal Forget Their Rock Solid Verification System?**
Once you have updated your account records your pending PayPal® account transactions will not be interrupted and will continue as normal.
To update your billing records please login to your account by clicking here.**DING DING DING, ALARMS, BELLS, WHISTLES**
Thank you for your time,
The click here address is (but dont click it!) :-
Whois Information for the website:_
::Dates & Status::
Moral of this Story:- NEVER CLICK FROM AN EMAIL TO A SUPPOSEDLY SECURE SITE
By the way if you did click that link it looks like a very good replica of Paypal, but ask yourself these questions:
# 1. Why is the color of the address bar still the same, Paypals secure bar is not a white background, but more a beige color, which incidentally matches a graphic bar on their website.
# 2. The Email address box on paypal is ALWAYS filled in with my email when I arrive at Paypals site, this copy website's box is not showing any email at all.
# 3.The Whole page is Different.
# 4. In the Status Bar at the bottom of the screen there should be a Padlock for a secure website such as Paypal. If you look at Paypals login screens status bar it also says www.paypal.com then the padlock is shown.
Well, I hope this helps you to be more alert when checking your emails.
Have A Safe And Secure Day!!! ;-)
