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.
- From address is: email@example.com vs. paypal.com
- There is an attached document, which is an html file
- Notice the last line
