PayPal Spam

There's one stark difference between an email which is really coming from Paypal.com and email from Paypal spammer: an email from Paypal.com will call / mention your name (in accordance with the name you give to Paypal during registration) in the first sentence of its letter, like Hi Fatih Syuhud, while Paypal spammer does not call you by name. At best, Paypal spam will say "Hi there", or "Hello there". Scroll down to see the sample of real email from Paypal.com

Here's the latest example of Paypal spammers email I got just now:

information about your account:
Security Center

Attention! Your PayPal account was limited!

As part of our security measures, we regularly check the work of the screen PayPal. We have requested information from you for the following reason:

Our system has detected unusual charges to a credit card linked to your PayPal account.

This is the last reminder to log into PayPal, as soon as possible. Once you connect. PayPal will provide measures to restore access to your account.

Another way to make sure an email come from Paypal or not is to check the email senders. When I click "show details" here's what appear:

from PayPal Billing Department
to fatihsyuhud@gmail.com
date Wed, May 20, 2009 at 6:37 AM
subject Please Restore Your Account Access
mailed-by b13.banan.cz

So, be careful with an email claiming itself from Paypal especially if you have a verified Paypal account meaning you've entered your credit card information in it.

2. There's NO LINK whatsoever in the email to click. Fraudelent Paypal spam requests you to click a link to a particular website.
