I’ve gotten hundreds of e-mails asking me for more examples of e-mail attacks also know as phishing attacks. So people know what to look for. So here is yet another one.
People I understand. But the thing is company’s like e-bay and PayPal tell you about e-mails phishing attacks. But you don’t have an example because as of yet no one other then me has shown them to you. Which I feel is really stupid…ANYHOW…here is one I received today. It is phishing attacks >>> Please send me your phishing attacks or scam e-mails. I will not accept any with attachments. Please send to firstname.lastname@example.org

This is fake but a really good fake compared to the last one I showed you guys. Here are some of the reasons it is a fake….
1. It is from a social network site Hi5. (It is know for being one of the worst SPAMMERS along with classmates.com)
2. Does not mention my real name on my PayPal account.
3. PayPal never has a direct link..they always ask you to sign in first with your old password. Then go from there..
4. It ended up in my junk mail folder because the PayPal e-mail did not match (WARNING: sometimes it can be an error..but it is a good practice to save the registration e-mail from PayPal and only accept e-mails from only that source)
