I caught a "Phishing" attempt from an unscupulous entity this morning, and REPORTED THE ENTITY.  It came from a "PayPal Online" and told me my account had to be 'locked' for security purposes.  They asked for me to 'aign in' which would have given them my username, password and email addy.  I called PayPal immediately, and they said it was not them immediately.  They, and most sites dealing with money transfers do NOT ask for your 'sign in' info. What to do?

REPORT THEM TO ic3.gov, the place to report Cyber Crime, monitored, I'm told by the FBI.  The guy from the actual PayPal gave me their URL, and I made a REPORT.  They give you the details on what you need to get for them and such.  I saved everything as documents and got the entities URL also.  If they want that stuff I'll be able to easily attach them to an email..I'M THE BUSTER! SCREW THE STEALERS, MAKE THE ASSHOLES FEEL THE WAY SHIT FEELS!   :angry fire:

And it gets FILED with the other millions of complaints never followed up.

 

They never get caught which is why it's still happening.  The best defense is to not open any emails or click any links/open any documents from within emails that you are not EXPECTING.  I tell clients "If it's legit and you accidentally erase it, they can always resend it".

Also, if you see a mail from your vendor, bank, or whoever asking you to click on a link for some great offer -DO NOT CLICK ON THE LINK, EVEN IF YOU THINK IT'S LEGIT -

 

Go to their website seperately and check it out, see if you can find the offer on the public pages, or after you log in - without using the email as the driver.

If you guys didn't get it, I never clicked on the 'offer' that was offered...I immediately called the REAL PayPal and was immediately told it WAS a SCAM.  I've not clicked an 'Offer' in any e-mail for YEARS....
