C’mon Phishers, You can Do Better than That!

| January 29, 2014

I opened my email program this morning and this was one of the emails I received last night:

PayPal Really?

The hyperlink for “sing-in” leads to http://www.azinetur.com/cc.php. Just for grins I clicked on the link to see how elaborate of a bait and switch plan these phishers put together, but I didn’t get too far. This is what my Firefox web browser displayed:

Web Forgery

Six years ago, almost to the day, I wrote a post  about PayPal phishing emails. It seems the players have changed but the methods are the same. I don’t know how successful these folks are, but people, please be careful. Don’t let these phishers get your personal information or your money. Bad enough hackers are stealing sensitive information from retailers. Don’t hand your info over to phishers.
