Hi guys , i just wanted to bring this to your notice.. recently i received emails which were addressed as paypal emails but BEWARE BEWARE BEWARE .. they are NOT PAYPAL EMAILS .. but they are some fraud doing this to steal your identity.. you will be told you need to comfrim your account failing which your paypal account will be terminated but never go on thier link or sign up from their link .. its a FAKE PAYPAL WEBSITE its looks very real .. i mean many of you guys wont be able to diffrentiate between the real and fake .. to all those who dont know ill tell you how ... *Always look for the link in the address bar once you have clicked the link.. the address should start with "HTTPS" and not "HTTP without the 'S'" ..S stands for secured site ..and sites like paypal are secured. * look out for the LOCK SIGN below ..next to your download bar !!it suggest this site is secured.. which you wont find in fake sites !! * paypal will never ask you to log in or will never address you with anything else but you FULL NAME. fake emails do just the opposite. * Also paypal willnever ask for credit card details befo or in your sign up form .. these fake sites DO. be a smart member and look out for these signs ..and if you get such mails you can forward it to "firstname.lastname@example.org" also if you wanna know something more about fishy emails .. go to paypal and Take their Fight Phishing Challenge at https://www.paypal.com/fightphishing to learn 5 things you should know about phishing. You'll also see what they're doing to help fight fraud every day. but NOT what i just told you guys in the pointers .. this is from my personal knowledge which i felt i should share with you guys ...
