I recently recieved an email from paypal as follows:

From Sender service @aws-paypal.co.uk

You have added nigeria_seller5 @gmail.com as a new email address for
your PayPal account.


If you did not authorize this change or if you need assistance
with your account, please use PayPal restore service at:


paypal.com/uk/webscr=email-login


Thank you for using PayPal!

 

My first instinct was what the hell? because i'd never authorised a nigeria seller to my account and i'm aware of the nigerian scams, so i tried opening the link only my anti virus had blocked this attempt. I then logged into my paypal account to make sure my money was safe and untouched and thought i'd email paypal security. which they replied it was phising scam.

So if you recieve anything like this please forward these emails to spoof @ paypal.com

REMEMBER - PAYPAL NEVER ASK FOR PASSWORDS OR PERSONAL DETAILS.
