This is a scam, but not baitable - but we can all still flood their boxes with junk information. Hopefully in deleting junk, they'll delete any information that someone foolishly provided!

Dear Customer,
This email has been sent to you by PayPal, Inc. to inform you that we were unable to process some of your recent paypal transactions. This might be due to one of the following reasons:

# Submitting incorrect information during initial sign up process.
# A recent change in your personal information. (eg: billing address, phone)
# An inability to accurately verify your personal information.

As a result, to ensure that your service is not interrupted we request you to confirm and verify your account information By Clicking Here

. However Failure to do so will result in abnormal account behaviour during transactions.

(Your case ID for this reason is PP-227-460-629.) <-- Also my credit card number, what a coincidence.


P.S ive looked all over the "full version" and classic version of this new hotmail, and cant find any options anywhere to view the original. Think i'll make a new Gmail account to use-like it better anyways.

Troy.

Moved here from tips.

This is a pretty standard phishing scam. The reply to email address is bad, so answering it won't do anything; they just want you to click the link and give up your details.

We don't really deal with phishing sites here, but if you like you can report it.


Edit: Since it's a paypal phish, you can forward it to [email protected] they will probably bring it down. You can also report it to http://www.castlecops.com/pirt

if you are using gmail you can report this immediately by sellecting "report phishing" which is the option above the "show details" which you would use to get the header details. If you don't know what I'm talking about seach this forum for "headers"

Many times gmail has already flag it as a phishing scam but still delievers it. In this case when you go to the report phishing message it will actually ask you to report that this message "is not a phishing message" so make sure you read before you click. if it is already marked a phishing message just delete it and forget it. if not then report it and delete it. You don't get any feed back as to what happens when you do this reporting so there is no need to keep the mail after reporting it.

^^When you use the "report phishing" feature in gmail, does it actually report it somewhere to get the site killed, or does it just get flagged when similar spam goes to other gmail users? I'm pretty sure it's the latter.

I believe that Gmail flags it as spam so that more like that and similar are automatically routed to your spam folder.
