Paypal PSA reminder

I just got an email that looked like it was from paypal saying they had limited my account. It said once I logged in it would help me through the steps to get rid of the limit and had a link. Of course I did not follow the link and logged in by typing in the website like usual and low and behold no limit on my account or anything to deal with. I then looked and the email address it came from was paypall.com

Remember to never click links in emails like that and always use your bookmark or type the address in. Scammers are everywhere.

If you look on PayPal, they have an address you can forward those spam messages to so they can try to shut them down.

Also, when you look at the URL if it says http it's an unsecured site. When it says https it's a secure site. Always check the url when you're asked to login.

Re: Paypal PSA reminder

I get at least 1 PER DAY in one of my emails I set up for my business (and I have my own url). This email address I have only used to sign up for government accounts (i.e. for CPSIA and getting an RN number). I find this completely ironic. I also get about 3-4 emails in the same account per week telling me I've won some kind of lottery or someone has died in Nambia and needs to wire inheritance or some damn thing. I never get any spam in my other email I have set up with the same url (but different alias) and it's the one I actually do use for my company's PP account LOL! It's so uber irritating. Someone must fall for it based on the shear volume of these types of email that I get.
