Some people really do have a lot of nerve, don’t they? I just received this phishing attempt to an e-mail account that I have never ever used, and that is visible (and collectable as it turns out) from my Text Pong pages.
Now. Phising isn’t new, but to do a phishing attempt in a mail waring for… phising attempts. Isn’t that just a bit too much?

The phishing attempt is complete with a sign in link to PayPal that goes to an IP number owned by somebody else. However almost half of the links in the mail actually takes you to PayPal, one even to a page where Paypal warns their customers of how to detect false Paypal e-mails.
Remember! If you have any doubt about the authenticity of a PayPal email, simply open a new web browser, type in https://www.paypal.com and perform the requested activity. Don’t ever click a sign in link in a mail from paypal. Or in any mail for that matter.
Stay safe. Act wizely.
