Get rid of Paypal...if they cant/wont protect their customers then Fuck em...:twocents
If that's your attitude, it's gonna be hard to do business with anyone before long. :twocents

It's not that hard for someone to copy a logo and put together a phishing email that looks somewhat official. I've received three of the PayPal variations, and I've clicked on the link for fun and it's already been shut down each time. So maybe PayPal is taking appropriate action when these emails are brought to their attention.

It's really simple.

Any online service that requires some level of security I have ever encountered has always made it very clear that they will not ask you for personal information via e-mail.

So don't give it out!

What's it supposed to be? Alice getting it in her wonderland?

I got a mail from "ebay" saying my account was showing some suspicious activity, and to log into it, to verify my current IP.....

MY ASS.

I checked it out, and it was [email protected]EDU

Rrrrrright, let me click that right quick.
