Scam Alert!

Something EVERY Paypal user should know



A common scam with Paypal is stealing of money through hacked accounts. Many passwords are stolen through misleading Email messages. We received this scam around 7PM on the evening of 9/11/2002.



THIS WAS NOT SENT BY PAYPAL! Do not follow the instructions! By clicking on the link and following the instructions, you will actually be giving away your password to a thief! This thief actually registered the domain in the name of Confinity, Inc. (a Paypal affiliated company). However, THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH PAYPAL!



I highly doubt Paypal would EVER send out an Email such as this. Do not be fooled!







Here is the who-is on the domain you\'re actually clicking over to, for those of you who are interested:

DNS1.EARTHLINK.NET 207.217.126.11



Register your domain name at http://www.register.com



Notice anything? The scammer wants you to believe it is really Paypal. The name servers give it away. Paypal does not use Earthlink.net.
