PostSubject: False PayPal Charges!   Sat 22 Mar - 0:04

Imagine my suprise when I got a receipt from Paypal telling me I just paid $175.85 for a Nokia phone. Of course I know I didn't just buy a phone and I know Paul didn't just buy a phone, we both have perfectly good phones. Which means one of two things either a) Our Paypal account was fraudulently used or b) it is yet another phishing scam. A quick perusal of the email proved it to be the latter.

Here are the headers of the email in question:

A few things that should trigger bells and whistles right away:

I haven't changed my name to Charmaine (neither has Paul)
I've never heard of
Paypal hasn't stopped using their own email servers for servers

The email itself is like most of the current phishing scams where the images are pulled directly from the originating source. Tables are the same as they would be in a real receipt. Take a look at the email below there is something wrong with it.
