A new spate of spoof Paypal emails

Watch out if you use Paypal. Phishers are sending emails that look genuine, inviting you to see your transactions or asking you to confirm your email address or add your bank account. Needless to say the links they give take you to a fake site, where they will harvest any information you give them.

The one that came to me "Confirm your email address" was given away by the e. added to paypal - it came from "noreply at" instead of "at"

If you get one, bin it and tell Paypal.

I got one of those yesterday, I just binned it as I am signed up to Paypal but never use it. Glad I did not open it.

I always bin these straight away and then only go into my PayPal account through official website.

I'm not signed up with Paypal but have received these emails. I delete and report them to Paypal.
