And the phish keep right on coming

Something (mis)identified as “PPL Safety Check” dropped this little deuce into the punchbowl of my mail client:

Fake PayPal message

OMG, Pakistan!

As a practical matter, so far as potential identity theft goes, there’s little difference between Pakistan and Punxsutawney.

The bogus link goes to something called supportticketmanage.com, whose primary business, we may safely assume, is something other than managing support tickets. They’re also not so hot at spelling: “access” has two C’s.

    Yup. As a rule of thumb, no matter what conveniences an email like that may offer, if you think there might be something to it, just log in your normal way to find out.

    Paypal isn’t going to send an email about account security yet fail to post a notification on your account page on a normal login.
