Hello friends, Are you a holder of Paypal account, then be careful..as I received a mail..identical to service mail from Paypal..Informing my a/c was suspended for ***** reason and asked to fill a attached form to restart my account.. But, guessing some doubts..I tried logging in to my account, which was as normal as earlier..Confirming that mail to be a mail from hackers.. So, please be careful, and do not respond such mails. Thanks

yes i agree with you, this is a kind of spoofing. where they seems to be come from paypal and they ask for the username and password of your account. this is a kind of spoofing. they will ask it to make this more secure. and they will get the information what you type not paypal.

I have a paypal account and I am very cautious with suspicious emails I received. Thanks for this information, I will be more vigilant with my account in paypal because it is there where I transferred all my earnings online.

Hello Yes paypal is also alerting all its user and one of online friends got a fake email and he was alerted before itself and he just ignored the fake email and his account is safe. Same as paypal and website name they send fake email to get out login credentials. Cheers

I receive such email almost everyday. What I do is to forward them to spoof@paypal.com. Maybe one day they find those people who are trying to scam us.
