If you’re going to try and fool me that you are from PayPal do not send me an email where the displayed sender’s name is Pa==F0=9D=97=92=F0=9D=96=AF=F0=9D=96=BA=F0=9D=97=85yPal... Also, don’t include this on the bottom of the email: How do I know this is not a spoof email? Spoof or “phishing” emails tend to have generic greetings such as “Dear PayPal member.” Emails from PayPal will always address you by your given surname and given name. and then in the email write Dear username@email (in this case my email address).

Well, you know how mysterious a name you have to have when your father is a former king of a little-known nation of The Great Continent, and you NEED my bank-account information so you can make a huge deposit and then withdraw most of it ...

Why I have abandoned being an "idealistic psychologist helping the poor" and started re-writing SCAM emails. It's more lucrative.

Their email was very long. That's including all the writing after the body of the email.

@TheHorse I wonder if it would be a fun task or if it would get annoying fast.

Lol, I swear they get dummer and dummer. My favorite is when it say “insert your name” they never do and just leave it as “insert your name”. Y’all got to be joking like ho the heck does they get anyone to fall for you trying to get info or money.

@lovebuglena I laugh and deleted them if they are really good and it’s note worthy then I can post about it. Other wise it gets deleted if it hasn’t already made into the spam box before getting through.

@ShyBear88 Usually these kinds of things go directly to the spam folder.

Yep. the usual e-mail adress for paypal is 'service@paypal.com' so, anything else is obviously not them. I don't understand how so many people get fooled so easily. When thease people slip so up so glaringly.

The displayed name means nothing though. I've gotten emails where the displayed name is correct but actual email of the sender is bogus.

Did you forward this email to the PayPal spoofing email address I gave you a couple of weeks ago?
@lovebuglena (35129)

Nope. I don't even remember the email you gave me. But too late as I deleted that bs email, even from trash Since this email was talking about phishing emails I wonder if they included a link to the paypal spoofing email.

The writing in the email is pretty good in terms of grammar and wording.

I have never received this kind of emails, thank you, now I know how to recognize the scam.

Regardless of what email address is shown in the sender's field you should always check where the email actually came from. It can show the correct email address but the actual email address where the email came from can be something weird. That is a giveaway that the email is a scam or spam.
