PayPal Spam

Recommended Posts

Just received spam email from "Paypal" to the email I created especially for this forum. Never used anywhere else. Am I the only one and they randomly managed to work out this email or could it be possible the email is somehow displayed on the forums here in a setting I have missed?

Mate, I actually got PayPal spam today (I initially deleted it, but I am now looking at it now) - and I don't get spam that often. I won't bother opening it but I got it at 13:50 and it's from [email protected], asking me to solve a problem with my account (which is nonexistent, aha).


OMASM. Radio presenters are like fruit. Matt is my kumquat and Scott is blatantly my orange.

I had this a week back, and have had multiple ones since, I used the phishing scam thing on hotmail. I doubt if they'd actually read it. But I can see how anyone who's not computer savvy would fall for this.


on the grid.

I'll look into this, although I've seen nothing from vBulletin yet to suggest there could be any issues. Will do some digging.

Email addresses are easy to obtain. Even if you make a donation to a charity, it often shows up when you google your name. I got one of these too, but I just ignore this stuff. It fascinates me that people would actually click on a link and hand over passwords / other details?!
