Just received a string of clever phishing scam emails through different email addresses I operate.

I know they are phishing attempts because:

1. They do not address myself in a personal sense, ie, by name
2. They are being sent to addresses I do not use for Paypal transactions

However, they are quite convincing because even in the junkmail folder, these emails appear to have standard HREF links to the Paypal.com website.

I’m presuming at this stage they redirect somewhere else, but as I’m on my business PC, I am in no way going to test and risk having my business PC compromised!

In the meantime, here’s a copy of the email, so be warned:
