MEMBERS’ COMMENTS
 
FIRST from Duncan a really good scam email, addressed to him by name, with his full address filled out.  This could easily have fooled anyone that does a lot of purchasing online, as they had so much personal detail.  It acts as a warning, that so much of our personal information has been circulated and sold online !!!!
 
The email thanked him for his order and included his full name and address for billing purposes, as well as for delivery.
 
For more information about the order placed on 4/4/2017 at 22:40:09
 
All returns are apparently covered by their ‘customer friendly returns policy’ !
 
There is of course the link, to find out more !!!
 
DON’T DO IT

Hi Jeff
 
One of my members has sent this to me:
 
Can you let Jeff & others know that I kept receiving emails from PayPal, so I got in touch with them through their website & spoke with Michelle who confirmed these messages were SPAM & would like everyone to forward any SPAM PayPal emails to them - the Genuine PayPal company - as it will help them to trace the source & put a stop to them.
 
She also told me that Genuine PayPal messages are addressed to the full name of the account holder, i.e. 'Dear Mr XXXX XXXXXXX'.
 
The information can be found as follows:
 
Contact us immediately using the phone number found on the following page: https://www.paypal.com/contact-phone Yours sincerely, PayPal Security Advisory:
 
When you log in to your PayPal account, be sure to open up a new web browser (e.g. Internet Explorer or Firefox) and type in the PayPal URL address, to make sure you are on the real PayPal website.
 
For more information on protecting yourself from fraud, please check our PayPal Security page.
 
Hope this helps everyone, who. like me, kept receiving them !
 
Many thanks,
 
Jo
 
Many thanks Jo and Peter that forwarded it to me.  Whenever you get one of these emails, simply copy it, then access paypal / you bank yourself and send whatever it is to them.  NEVER JUST CLICK ON REPLY !

Hi Jeffwhilst it is not quite the same scam as you have been outlining, I receive numerous emails, claiming to be from someone I know and quoting their name.
 
They usually start ‘hi duncan’ (note the lower case ‘h’ and ‘d’)  – and contain a link.
 
Good advice not to open any of the links, but if you want a quick check just look at the domain address.  Does your friend live in ‘.pol’, ‘.esp’,’.rus’?
 
If it emanates from an unusual domain, it is definitely a scam.
 
Duncan
 
Duncan is obviously someone of importance, being trolled by the much publicised teams of ‘Russian Hackers’ !!!
 
 
Eyes and ears.....................and brain
