Damn they almost got me - July 6, 2009, 09:55 AM



too damn early and i almost got hoodwinked...watch ya back

first came the email



pic says this if you can't see it:

You have initiated a payment for $32.00 USD to info@aplus.net. This payment will be completed once the recipient has accepted the payment.


Payment details
Amount: $32.00 USD
Transaction ID: 7H62990F0023788R

Because the payment was made from an foreign ip address, we put the transaction ID 7H62990F0023788R on hold.

To cancel this payment, please follow the link below:
Cancel Transaction ID 7H62990F0023788R.
Email Id: VMD 239 ESFFUSNZERNBURMGGDCIBCXYNGQSSCZQODRCXY
*****

then i called when i clicked the link to cancel the transaction and saw this




had any and all transactions verified via the phone.

This is verified as a scam via paypal.

Yeah, if I'm reading the image correctly, the address it sends you to the "PayPal" page the www site isn't PayPal.

Good rule of thumb (which you already likely know) is if a site asks you to go to any financial institution, enter the address manually into your browser, don't just click the link.

IF You entered your username/password to "Log In" you may want to change your password to your paypal account.

I got targeted by a paypal scam too, a few months back. I just got some email asking me to verify my account information. I can't remember the details, but somehow the URL "www.alyssa.com" showed up, and that's how I determined it was a scam.


How's my posting? Please direct all concerns and inquiries to DCSBN's chief content manager, Hollywood, via PM.

Clue 1: the "from" email address has a domain of paypal-web.com

Clue 2: the "to" email address is to a paypal-help.com address

After those two, I would've just trashed the email or maybe reported it to PayPal. But there still is...

Clue 3: they want you to click on a "log in" link in the email

Clue 4: the URL in the location bar on the second one isn't even going to a paypal site

In those regards:
Safety tip 1: when you roll your mouse over the link on the first screen, read the status bar at the bottom... in web browsers (especially Firefox), you will often see the actual URL of where you're going to be redirected when you click on it. You can also do a "copy link location" and paste it into a text editor to see the whole thing. Often, these little tricks can save you a lot of time and effort.

Safety tip 2: PayPal does *NOT* do a non-HTTPS account login; when in doubt if this is a PayPal site, manually enter the URL in the location bar... and if the phisher is using HTTPS, the certificates won't match.

Safety tip 3: Do exactly what Oneway did when in doubt... make a phone call to PayPal (or your bank, if it's a bank phishing attempt)


I've been watching this kind of crap for a long time... and if you want to test your ability to find them:
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv...shingtest.html

I got two wrong... tagged them as "fake" when they were "legitimate"... OK, so I'm paranoid about this stuff.

Lol. Man they are getting ballsy asking for your ATM pin! Think even the dumbest computer illiterate would notice that phllr8 or whathever the phising page was deifnltey not Paypal.

D, my buddy had an offer on a craigslist LCD projector he was selling. Woman said she lived in Manassas but wanted to send to her daughter in Nigeria. For some odd reason she wouldn't agree to just pick it up, wanted him to send it straight there. Idiot almost fell for it before he called me!


If yall wanna see some scammers getting scammed.. http://419eater.com funny stuff

so check this out i am getting rid of some old furniture on craigslist and this person emailed me asking if i still had them, responded back saying ya and this was the response back:


Thank for the prompt response my secretary will process and mail a
certified draft to cover the cost as am completely satisfied with it.
I will need the details of whom & where to mail the payment
1.Name to be on the check
2.Home address
3.Mobile #
Please note 'United Parcel Service' do not deliver to P.O.Box
addresses and i will not be mailing a draft to one. My mover will be
coming over for the pick up right only after the payment as been
delivered and cleared. Kindly delete the posting as am totally
committed to buying from you to save cost,.. Here is my relay phone # is
(210) 209-8524 drop message, i will receive your phone messages via email,
regards.


emailed them back saying no come pick it up with cash in hand, and haven't heard back.

I almost fell for a paypal scam once. Luckily I wised up when they asked for bank routing numbers, pin numbers, and my SSN. Why can't we just put a little lead in their head for scamming people?
