New Way Of Stealing People's Paypal Pockets?

It looks like spammers never get out of ideas and new methods and ways to steal people's pockets! And now since Paypal is getting used by a lot of people, spammers are taking advantage of this and are using Paypal's method.

I knew about this when I opened my email to find a message from a spammer telling me that I have issues in my Paypal's account. The funny thing here is that the message was sent to an email which is not used for my paypal and is totally not used for any social media accounts neither contact emails.

The email had a link inside it that took me to a site having the same appearance of Paypal and it included the login boxes. Funny, isn't it?

Beware of this new spamming way!

I never click those links. I always go to the site from my bookmark just to be safe.

Thanks for the warning. I wouldn't even visit that site. You never know if it could cause you problems just by clicking on the link. I never go to paypal via link anyway, as wolfgirl said.

wow, great. I hate those spammers. I am trying my best to earn a little penny here to put in my Paypal and there they are the spammers. Hope they will be jailed.

Thank you for reminding us about this. I have some money in my Paypal account.

Thank you for the warning I have received the same emailed, but I don't really open my paypal just because of that. I actually delete all those kind of email and log in to my paypal using the original site, not opening it with a link.

I have received that kind of emails as well. When it happens I delete the emails and l use the official website.

I never open those questionable e-mails. They don't look right to begin with. It is best to be safe and not open them then to open a spam message intent to fraud and be sorry.
