Can something be done about this paypal scam?
Got an email for it stating I needed to update my account or something, it asks for your CC# last 6 digits of your SS# and all sorts of personal info, oh, and that is after getting your account name and PW... (i put in a fake email and pw to get through)
But these people should be stopped immediately... look up their name and info and report them to someone?
PayPal has an area where you can report fraud/scams.
This phising attempts are just getting ridicolous the FBI needs to do something about these fucks and lock all these bastards up for good. Let them phish there assholes..
everytime I hit a phish site or email, Internet Explorer lets me know and wont even open up. It flags all red and tells me it a phish site.

Ah, Internet Explorer. Is there anything this unmatched browser can't accomplish?
email= firstname.lastname@example.org@paypal.com email@example.com@paypal.com/email and they'll see it...
I sell on E-bay and have had paypal for about 5-6 yrs. If I had a dollar for every phishing email I get for either site, I might be rich by now. I get at least 2-3 a day per site. I just know now, that if I'm not addressed by my full name not to respond. I also know the format both e-bay and paypal use to send emails so it's kinda hard to trick me anymore = )

Firefox does that too
just thinking about htis. i get 1 a day on hotmail and 5 a day on excite. not as many as others but still annoying . i used to write them back and say f off but the emails would bounce back )
I remember when I got an email from a phishing site telling me abuot a $5,000 charge the same day my mom's bank account got broken into... that was the only time they [i148ce3dc56]almost[/i148ce3dc56] caught me; in fact, I got the email while she was on the phone with the police, lol.
