Re: Phishing Scam Disguised as Email from Paypal

Common spoof, if you have already done so:

 

* Forward the entire email to:    spoof@paypal.com.
* Do not alter the subject line or forward the message as an attachment.
* Delete the suspicious email from your inbox.
* Never click on any links within the email or open any attachments.

 

For those who want to learn, look at the sender email address in the email, the domain name is "americanidentify.com", sure does not look like it's PayPal.   Also "Dear Customer" should be your first "red flag", very generic.
