Fake PayPal e-mail

I use PayPal when I buy and sell stuff on eBay. And from time to time I get spoof mails telling med that I need to update the information or what ever. By time, I’ve learned how to find out if an e-mail is fake or not. Some I’ve got, looks very real, but most of them is clearly fake, like the one I got yesterday. In the mail it stated:

“However, failure to update your records until July, 30, 2006 can lead to account suspension. Please update your records as soon as posible.”


Well, if they try to fool us, at least they could use a date that is realistic. Yesterday was August 28th. But if you new to this and don’t know much about computers and securities, you can easily be fooled. You can read more about PayPal security at here.
