This Paypal email hoax just wont go away ...

This hoax Paypal email has been continually reported to us from 26th October 2003 and is STILL ACTIVE.

We have images of the hoax email and fake Paypal web page that it sends you to - see below.

This hoax is following the pattern of many others by being redistributed with a different link to the fake page on each new release. We expect to see this one remaining in an active status for a while yet, so please read on and get familiar with the scam and images, it could be in your inbox soon.

The email hoax states that Paypal will put your account on a restricted status until you complete their credit card verification process. The email does not contain a link as such, the whole text area is in fact an image, and clicking any where within the text area will take you to the first hoax web page.

If you have received this hoax 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.
