[RC] OT -fraud alert for paypal members - Teresa Van Hove

Not a bit endurance related, but I just followed a link that 
looked like it was sent by paypal and said I needed to verify
my acct and the actual link went to 
http://www.paypal.com@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx  -even though it showed in
the email as https.www.paypal.com/verify

No request for my paypal password but they wanted me to
fill in name, address, ss#, and a credit card #.  

I reported them to paypal (who actaully have an
easy system for this from their real website)  

Just a reminder to be wary (some of these frauds are not
as obvious as the 'send us your bank #'s so we can get
26 Million out of the country and we'll give you 10%' ones)

take care all -with your horses and on-line.
