Filed under: Uncategorized — Richard B. Pyne @ 8:06 am

I received this email claiming to be from PayPal security department asking me to verify my account information.

While the links at the bottom of the email (not included here) were legitimate PayPal links, the one in the message where I am supposed to verify my account information IS NOT. It belongs to:

9/F, Building A, Corporate Square, No. 35 Financial Street
Xicheng District, Beijing 100032, P.R.China
