pay pal phishing

I got an email from pay pal, which is not unusual.  But it’s content was.  I clicked on the link and it took me to an older version of the pay pal page.  Even more cautious.

I contacted pay pal directly from a new page, not the one attached to the email.

I later got two emails back from pay pal confirming that it was an attempt to get my account details from me.

So for those who use pay pal, if the salutation says “Dear Customer” or such like then it’s not from pay pal, they will always contact you using your name.

So be aware that these emails are on the rounds.
