Phishing Attack using PayPal

I just received a unique PayPal Scam. This is the firs time I receive such kind of email. And after checking the links of the cancellation of payment I have seen that the links does not lead to PayPal.

Beware in this kind of email. It look like a real email since the email address that will show in your email list is [email protected].

Of course the first reaction from a Paypal user is to cancel the transaction thru the link that has been provided. And after putting your Paypal Address and Paypal Password.. bye bye.. all your account could be transfer very fast. So be very careful. What they did no know is my account was under .

So be very careful with this kind of email. Another why it is better to use Mozilla Firefox.

    I get these daily (along with ones form eBay, various banks, etc). Keep in mind the following:
    1. No site will ever address you as “member” they always use your name.
    2. If it’s unexpected or hard to believe, don’t click anything, just go to and check your account there.
    3. No site will ever ask you to confirm info that they already have, I don’t care what reasoning the email gives.
    Follow those and you’ll never fall victim to them.
