A Fake PayPal Email

By Keith D. Paul

To those of you who actually sent SECURE information to a link on an email, you deserve what you got. I did. I was stupid enough to reply and got the crap hacked out of me, but that was my fault.  With all the scams going on, the biggest thing is to NEVER NEVER link on an email. Go to your site and sign in, voila, no problems.

That said, I think it’s pretty crappy to blame others for your duping by fake email. ANY company doing business online has jackasses using fake emails and notices to try to get your info.  IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO VERIFY BEFORE ANSWERING ANY, I REPEAT ANY, EMAIL OR LETTER THAT ASKS FOR INFO OR CLINK ON A LINK TO GO TO.
