PAYPAL - Warning: SCAM

by
I just received a very well crafted hoax e-mail from "paypal" saying that my account has been limited and to log in to change my password. I clicked the link and got to a login screen that also said Paypal. Before going any further, I compared that e-mail with other PayPal e-mails I'd received and sure enough the "your account has been limited" email was from "Paypal" not "PayPal". I then searched to find the well hidden origin email address and found an email ending in "destroyyourdiabetes.net". So just a warning to any and all that use PayPal, there is someone out there trying to get your account info by posing as PayPal and doing a pretty convincing job of it too. I changed my password (through the official site) just to be safe. Hope this will help at least one person from getting sucked into the scam!

The best thing to do is never click on any link in an e-mail at all.  Ever.  Just open your web browser and log into the company web site directly to check accounts.  That way, the spammers (and even legitimate businesses) can't verify and track your e-mail account, which only results in yet more spam.
