Hello everybody!

I got an e-mail today which looks like to be from service@intl.paypal.com, stating:

Security Center Advisory!


We recently noticed one or more attempts to log in to your PayPal account from a foreign IP address and we have reasons to belive that your account was hijacked by a third party without your authorization. If you recently accessed your account while traveling, the unusual log in attempts may have been initiated by you.

If you are the rightful holder of the account you must click the link below and then complete all steps from the following page as we try to verify your identity.

Click here to verify your account





If you choose to ignore our request, you leave us no choise but to temporaly suspend your account.

Thank you for using PayPal!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


PayPal Email ID PP377



This is definitely a phishing attempt, because the link "Click here to verify your account" points to "http://201.230.45.180/www.paypal.com/webscr_cmd=login-run2084" which evidently doesn't belong to PayPal.com.

Beware of such Phishing Manoeuvres!
