Pay Pal...fraud alert! E-mail scam!


Yesterday, unknown parties tried to scam me through my e-mail account at yahoo, under the guise of a so-called "Pay Pal" alert.

The communication alleged that my Pay Pal account was in "limited" status - for some inexplicable reason - and encouraged me to upgrade by providing personal data (including my password) and credit card information.

I immediately became suspicious, so I surfed over to the Pay Pal web site to review my account.


As usual, my account was in good stead, without restriction!

Obviously, con artists on the Internet are now focusing on Pay Pal (and its vulnerabilities), so watch out!
