in Appearance Scam Emails, Bank Scam Emails by Scam Alert Editor

 

This fake PayPal security notification is classic.
It has an attached html item that you are expect to click on.

Normally we run these through a stand along computer and see what was really in the attachment.
This time we deleted the email before doing so.

Chances are it was either:

  • A phishing page where they try to steal your PayPal credentials
  • An advertising page.

This is a pretty poor example…meaning, there is plenty here to give it away as a fake.

Including:

  • From address is: clients@secure.net vs. paypal.com
  • There is an attached document, which is an html file
  • Notice the last line
