Your PayPal Account Has Been Violated



Dear PayPal Member:

Attention! Your PayPal account has been violated!

Someone with ip address 149.225.126.87 tried to access your personal account!

Please click the link below and enter your account information on the following page to confirm that you are not currently away. You have 3 days to confirm account information or your account will be locked.

Looking at the source code for this HTML message, I find that the links are directed to “user-service.com” – a site design identical to PayPal.com.

Here’s the whois info:

I forwarded the entire message including headers to the PayPal fraud department at: spoof@paypal.com where they confirmed it’s a scam.

One of the top 10 signs of a fake email trying to obtain your PayPal username and password is: Generic greetings (see above). Many spoof emails begin with a general greeting, such as: “Dear PayPal member.” If you do not see your first and last name, be suspicious and do not click on any links or button.
