Beware Paypal!

If you receive orders via Paypal beware of a fake e-mail telling you that you have received a payment - the address is; service1@paypal.com

And the subject; Notification of payment received

A genuine one has the 'Payment Received' capitalised & the customer's address, rather than a @paypal.com e-mail.

It's not the email per se that's the threat - it's the links and attachments therein.

I know, but I just bin them regardless, just in case the baby presses a random key at the wrong time. I say the baby, I mean me, of course.

I thought we now had drive by emails which could cause issues, especially if they included HTML, or images?

trouble is I have my e-mails with a window at the bottom of the screen so I can preview them as I scroll down the e-mails. Luath

Hence the 'per se' qualification. I've got security clamped down on my system here, so opening an email is no threat. Not familiar enough with other email systems (e.g. outlook) to say whether such precautions are universally available.

If users keep up with system updates they will remain reasonably safe - generally.
