I have been away for a week and just logged back into OE. I have three emails ' allegedly' from PayPal giving an ID number for an investigation into an ' unauthorised access to my account'. McAfee warns that the link they give is likely to be a scam site. 'PayPal' ask me to confirm my account details. Obviously I wont. Anyone else had this??
It's just another typical 'phising scam' from some chancer arsehole. Anyone who clicks on one of those deserves everything they get.There's enough publicity and warnings in abundance about these scams yet some people still insist on opening them. Ignorance laziness or apathy apply in most cases.
Just be aware all that no company etc in any way shape or form will ever ask you to confirm your pin, log on details etc by way of an email. If you do get one of these either just delete or forward it to the relivent department, at least if the relivent departments are aware of these spoof/phishing emails they can then take steps to close these bogus/phishing sites down or take legal action against these pricks.
