Yes, I’m sure this guy is all fake, the reasons is :
- Check the destination “to” field email, it is stated as undisclosed-recipients; this name is defined as a group of email addresses, a lots one it could be. In fact, I notice it before seeing the whole thing. They hid the “to” field. My address and name are not listed as being who the email is to. The point is: it is very weird if PayPal send the customer within a collective addresses in “to” field.
- Whenever you get an email that claims to be from PayPal, always look first at who is addressed. If it says, “dear Member,” like this one does, then delete it - it’s completely fake and you have nothing to worry about. A valid PayPal email will always, always, always greet you by your first and last names!
- There is nothing detailed item purchased displayed. Do you believe of buying nothing? It is give me a very wide laugh...
- Typically these emails contain links to PayPal look-alike sites that are only set-up to steal your login information and from there your balance, credit card info, etc. So don’t click those links! They may be disguised inside of domain names, stupid things like, my–paypal–com.info or something, or they may be IP addresses and just look like random numbers, or they could be anything. he apparently wants my PayPal login information! The only link in this email is a supposed “cancel transaction” and, strangely enough, it currently doesn’t point to a PayPal wannabe site as is typical of these emails. The link points to http://ns.mastel.com.bo/ /dellproduct/index.html, but visiting that site gives me a, “The page cannot be displayed” notice and that’s about it. I’ve heard tale of a certain get-a-phone-call-from-Bank website out there hosting PayPal scams, actually…
- Now, I don’t know who Wayne E. Bakewell at 16 Elm St., Brownsville, PA 15417 in the United States is… but whoever he is*, the true thing about Mr. Bakewell is not just that he’s a spammer but apparently a very stupid one. How can he possibly benefit from sending out these emails? Let's Google it!
