"Paypal" has been sending me emails about all the cool shit I bought (apparently)

Hey all,

This is a PSA to anyone who received weird emails from Paypal. I got emails from Paypal recently informing me about a purchase that I made for my son to send to my house in Florida.

Thing is, I don't have a son and I've never been to America, let alone have a house there. This is clearly scam but the guys who did this were really fucking good at their jobs. It didn't even for through my spam folder, went straight to my main email.

Code:

I'm genuinely concerned that some people might actually fall for this because it looks so legit. Of course, seeing this image, you can see the email at the top which is clearly NOT from Paypal but I'm certain some people may not even look at that because they're worried about spending over $200 for something they didn't buy.

This is another email i got from another fake Paypal. The email looks like it was from Paypal but it isn't. It says "@pa-ypal.com". It has a dash in it. Any emails from Paypal will be "@paypal.com". No dashes or anything.

Code:
Content visible to registered users only.
If you guys get this email, make sure you guys confirm that the email is from "@paypal.com" before you proceed with anything like this. If you guys are truly unsure, then look at the top left of your browser in the URL bar, Paypal's official site should have the little green security thing at the top.

Code:
Content visible to registered users only.
If you get these kinds of emails, I recommend NOT clicking on the "Resolution Centre" or "Secure My Account" because the link will send you to a fake Paypal website that will ask for your email and password. DO NOT put your real email and password as this is a phishing website and this site will collect that information to go to some sleazy fucker who will steal your Paypal account.

If you are curious about this site, don't put your real email. This site will allow you to proceed no matter what email or password you use. My email was "fuckyou@fucker.com" and my password was "eatadick". Once in, the website will continue to ask for your information such as you name, home address and even credit card number.


Seriously, someone went to great lengths to do this because the whole thing looks seriously legit. I'm sure some poor people actually got their information stolen. Be careful out there, folks.

Yeah, looks super real, they even made up delivery address, probably that guy who's living there doesn't even know about this, got his address and personal info leaked somewhere. They're making people to believe that somebody stole their paypal account and started buying shit for themselves which usually leads to panic mode and you want to get your account secured asap. Smart fuckers, doing this in a hurry, many red flags can be overlooked.

Lots of the 60+ crowd fall for this stuff. Sucks. Actually I'd say some of the younger internet users coming up aren't very savvy either which is odd since they've had it their entire lives.

I remember when altavista was the search engine of choice, I was in class and one of those windows popped up saying I was the lucky winner! Reply for my very own Nokia brick phone!!! I was pumped for like five seconds, until the kid sitting next to me told me I probably won't pass high school and that I'm ugly.

Re: "Paypal" has been sending me emails about all the cool shit I bought (apparently)

i get those mails too. it is from @paypal.com. the site that opens up looks pretty close, yet it lacks any certificate (if you click a lot of links online you might even have their certificate tho... i am not totally sure how this part works, tbh).

in 100% of the cases they have spelling errors. if they fix that... well, ofc you can check the full header (view sourcecode on thunderbird) and check it out.

here there seems to be a bounce from a japan server to a netherland server which seems unusual for a u.s. company. also, there doesnt seem to be a mail client involved, but a script? (Nemesis? iunno). you could check the IP adresses in whois to verify the domains, but i don't have a plugin for that and i am lazy.

all signs that this shit is fishy as fuck.

edit: underscores since bold doesnt translate well within the CODE sections

That's a pretty good scam; get people to panic about a transaction they didn't make so they'll log in immediately to sort this mess out. I hate to give pieces of shit credit, but this was well-executed.
