What's the new spoof/fraud forwarding email for Paypal?

I've used both spoof@paypal.com and spoof@paypal.co.uk but they no longer work - what's the new email I can forward spoofing emails from fake sources for Paypal?

 

Thanks

They do work, just tested it myself.

 

And got back this reply so it must work  >>>

I have the same problem albeit some weewks later than the OP.

I have received a fishing email and tried to send it to the recommended addresss 'spoof@paypal.co.uk'

and the system bounces it back.

so what's going on?

Hi DIGLS,

 

Thanks for posting.

 

The email Spoof@PayPal.co.uk should work but you can use Spoof@PayPal.com or Review@PayPal.com to forward on these emails. I know some email providers are sensitive to the word spoof so the review email might work better.

 

I hope this helps.

When you just send test emails the two 'spoof' addresses work.

 

But when you try forwarding anything they DO NOT.

 

In my case when I tried forwarding the spoof email it alerted the original dodgy email sender and I got another dodgy email from them which in the general confusion very nearly fooled me ...PHEW!

 

I have alerted PayPal but the more the merrier.

 

Has anyone else found that PayPal's attitude has become a bit shoddy of late??
