I got an email this morning from what I though was PayPal .. it was good, I mean real good. The return address was spoofed to think it was from PayPal (and I checked too), it came to my proper email account, it had the right look, the tone was right, no spelling errors, graphics were good - I mean if I was so synical (sp?) of eveything that showed up in my inbox it would have fooled me.
BUT, there was a few errors - one is that my PayPal email address is different from my "main" address, two is PayPal will never ask you to confirm information for security purposes, and three when you click on the embedded link you end up at a numbered website, not PayPal's site, yes, I knew this before I clicked, but I wanted to see.
I guess this is a warning to be careful, but also a question too. Why, after spend hours creating the almost perfect spoof (and a guarantee that a small percentage of those who receive it will fall for it), do you have a link to a site that doesn't work?
the crap is piled high ... now trying to keep up
