Latest Paypal phish scam
In this scam, you receive phished email suggesting you just made a $650.00 payment to Rose City/DJ's.
Many people would get upset and immediately click on the hyperlink to cancel the transaction.
This would take you to a fake Paypal webs site that would harvest you user name and password and then phishers would clean out your bank account.
Rightardia opened another browser tab to check the Paypal account and there was no indication of a $650 charge. So we reported the email as a phish.
