FRAUD ALLERT for PAYPAL

I recieved a fake e mail from what looked like Paypal saying that my acount had been flag for possible fraud and I had to re-enter my info. There was even a link that took me to a page that looked like a paypal page, but from what I can tell it was not! It wasnt even a secure page, which I know paypal would not use for senitive info. I have reported it to Paypal. I just wanted everyone to be carefull if they recieve an e mail like this!

Please be carefull!

Exclamation

Thanks for the information. I use PayPal to pay and get paid, and I often receive messages from PayPal indicating that I should always verify that I am on their secure site (https:, not merely http.

Did you keep the email? I would like to know the exact wording.

Please keep us informed on the results/reaction from PayPal too.

Just make sure that if you are going to make any changes on any site like paypal, that you actually go to their site and log on!

The Red is suppose to say: Notice they do not want any return e mail to go to paypal.

Here is the e mail:

Angry MY PayPal account is Limited? No way!

Try again. The image was too big!

(In case the last message was rejected, here is the header portion of the fraudulent message I received, supposedly from payPal).

Notice that the extended header shows where it is from, and I looked it up, and it's not PayPal.

I'll post a real PayPal message in my next post.

By the way, you can investigate by doing a reverse lookup on the IP address (or phone number, or email address, etc) at the fiollowing:

Talking Headers from a REAL PayPal message...

Here is the header section of a real PayPal message. I circled what I looked at, and investigated. The IP address is a PayPal address too.
