Beware Bloggers for Paypal Scammers  

Posted in

While I was dropping EC the other day I caught my attention about this posted entry from Technotrend. So I would like to share this to you just read the attachment below


--------------------------------------------
I got an e-mail that looked very legitimate.
The e-mail says: Notification of Limited Account Access
From: service@paypal.com

Yes, it looks very legit. But be VERY CAREFUL! Check the e-mail address, its not from service@paypal.com, but from service@verio.com

I fell for it, but luckily, my virus scanner was able to detect that is was a scam.

The email goes like this:
