Now you can determine whether that latest “Paypal Account Notification” you got was a Paypal phish and you don’t even have to have a brain. Phil says:
Forward any paypal mail you aren’t sure about to firstname.lastname@example.org. You will receive mail very quickly verifying if it is phishing or legit. I have had about five so far that were phishing this year. One was a legit from paypal.
We gave it a shot and got a response within minutes. We did have to look for it in our junk mail box. Our filters send all emails “From Paypal” straight to the compost.
