December 15th, 2005, 04:45 PM #1PayPal LuxWat Phishing email
I got an email today that was a scam, but I gotta tell you - it was far and away the best imitation I've seen to date. The phishers are getting very good at it. Timing, this close to holidays. Disguised as a payment confirmation for some luxury watch... I had the urge to click the link - you know... grey matter boiling and saying "WTF, I didn't buy a gold watch and nobody in my house should have either! I'm going to dispute this right away."
Images, fonts, colors, shading, layout are a top notch imitation of PayPal.
Anyone else get the spam?
Man, a lot of people are going to fall for this one!

I got a Paypal spam saying that a new email id has been added to my account. First instinct was to click on the link - but I typed in paypal to make sure of any signs of tampering (emails, accounts, bank transfers etc). Send off the email to spoof@paypal .. paypal comfirmed that it is a fake.
