Paypal Account Phishing Scam Takes A New Twist

You’re probably already familiar with the old phishing scams where someone has passed away/fled a third world country/discovered some long-forgotten funds and needs your “help” to wire the money. For just a small “administrative” fee, the person will share the $15 million amount with you.

Though this online fraud has been exposed some time ago, people are still falling for it.

The latest scam has an interesting twist.

Here’s an email I received:

Dear User,

This looks pretty legitimate, however, checking on the hyperlinked address to “fix” this problem, it goes to “http://paypal.update-user-infodotcom/index.htm”
Which is obviously intended to harvest your paypal login and password.

They probably won’t catch too many people with this trick, but still it pays to be careful.
Always check the originating domain and you’re unsure, go to the Paypal website and drop them an email.
