Hi, Not a question, just offering advise. I have recently received emails claiming to be from paypal and ebay claiming my account has been used fraudulently or accessed by a foreign IP address and contain a link to change my details. Please – Please don’t enter any details via this kind of email. These emails are not from the web-sites they claim to be from. Thanks.
The e-mails look official but the spelling is atrocious. Also the to line is blank. I changed all my passwords after receiving one of these e-mails. Then reported the web site to Pay Pal. Responce from Pay Pal was that the site was bogus and was under investigation.
stalion, I understand what you are saying but I have never known them to contain a virus yet. They are just trying to get your details. You shouldn't get a virus if you have a good antivirus programme running (AVG?) anyway. Plus, of course, you should also have a firewall running as well.
Thanks for the response everyone. Other good advise, on the same subject, is if you are going to enter your details, always type in the "known" web-site address into your address line yourself or use a link in YOUR favourite list, again one that is known to be correct.
Safe surfing Regards f1fan
