Beware of false Paypal emails
« on: August 03, 2016, 07:31:24 AM »
I recently received an email which claimed to be from Paypal stating that I have funds in my account. I clicked the leads and got to my landing page. Luckily, it was a genuine email. Others are not so lucky. To authenticate whether an email is from Paypal, it will address you by your first by last names. They also don't ask for sensitive information like passwords or account details. An email that asks for such details and instructs you to respond urgently is likely to be fake. Such emails contain grammatical errors and mispellings or in a language you didn't sign in. Do not click any leads in suspicious emails.

I would think in the modern digital age, no one would be caught off guard by an email asking for your password. What kind of sense does it make for a company to ask you for a password stored on their servers? This would especially be a red flag for me at a site that has your money on it. I basically trust no one online.

I've only received one of those fake e-mails, but they clearly look like pishing links andtherefore, I've never opened it since I've had really bad experiences with opening that kind of links. People should be aware of that, they may have their PP accounts stolen and hijacked.
