Default Fraud/Scam/Phishing Alert

Yesterday, I had a buyer try to open a PayPal dispute for an item sold two months previous. Paypal refused them, but I sent an "email" to them anyway trying to help. They did reply.

Funny thing, today I received an email from Paypal asking me to "Please restore my account access."

Everyone, this was the best phishing email I have ever seen. When I clicked the link to "log-in" to Paypal, the page was perfect. Even the URL looked almost exact. So, be very careful. I almost got fooled into providing my log-in information to a very well done scam.

The header IP address from which is 69.60.121.18.

^^^^^^^^^^
I am sure you know this but......
NEVER EVER log into Paypal from a email.
Always go to your own personal stored link.

You are correct my friend!!!! I simply clicked the link to see what would happen. Nevertheless, I still changed my password. These guys are getting good!

And eBay still claims PayPal is safer than Google checkout...I think not!
