I've used both firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com but they no longer work - what's the new email I can forward spoofing emails from fake sources for Paypal?
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 'firstname.lastname@example.org'
and the system bounces it back.
so what's going on?
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??
