    Always right click links to check them out, or better yet, type in the URL yourself.

    No one click on those links please. PayPal and Ebay will never send you an email like this, the real deal always starts with your real name.

    Well, I just pulled off the impossible by doing a double-blind comparison all by myself, purely by virtue of the fact that I completely and stupidly forgot what I did last. I guess that getting old does have its advantages after all :D

    Scam. I get similar emails on my son's world of warcraft account all the time too. They do a good job of making them look official. I can see how they could sucker some poor grannies and whatnot.

    Default PayPal Follow-up

    Hello Mike,

    Thanks for forwarding that suspicious-looking email. You're right - it
    was a phishing attempt, and we're working on stopping the fraud. By
    reporting the problem, you've made a difference!

    Identity thieves try to trick you into revealing your password or other
    personal information through phishing emails and fake websites. To learn
    more about online safety, click "Security Center" on any PayPal webpage.


    Every email counts. When you forward suspicious-looking emails to
    spoof@paypal.com, you help keep yourself and others safe from identity
    theft.

    Your account security is very important to us, so we appreciate your
    extra effort.

    Thanks,

    PayPal
