Spoofed Paypal Account Limited email uses
Address Bar Spoofing in bogus web content ...
Another instance of address bar spoofing - where the bogus
web content is opened in crafted pages that remove and reconstruct the
address bar of the user's web browser to show a fake URL. The same as
the other Paypal
Scam previously reported.
If you have received this email, please remember that it is very
common for these email scams to be redistributed at a later date with only slightly
different content or the same but with the fake page(s) hosted by a different
provider. Also, once you have received one of these hoaxes, it is also common
place to receive at least another one and usually a day or two after the first,
although not necessarily from the same apparent sender.
