Fake Email From Paypal


"Phishing" is an illegal attempt to "fish" for your private, sensitive data. One of the most common phishing scams involves sending an email that fraudulently claims to be from a well-known company – like PayPal. These emails may contain links to fake websites or fraudulent attachments.
Fake websites encourage you to enter personal information like credit card numbers, social security numbers, and account passwords.

Today, I received an email from a supposedly Paypal email informing me that my account will be closed due to the suspension of my credit card. I had a hunch that this was a fake email. I immediately logged in to my Paypal account via the Paypal website which is and from there, I noticed that there was no urgent message informing me to update my account nor a closing of my account. I am posting here the screenshot of the email I have received and I hope this will serve as a warning to check thoroughly the email from Paypal. DO NOT EDIT OR UPDATE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION VIA A LINK GIVEN FROM AN EMAIL. I have also immediately forwarded the email to the Paypal support so that they will check if this is a fraudulent email.

The fake Paypal email I received on 3 May 2016.
The website that will show upon clicking the link on the fake Paypal email.

The authentic Paypal log-in page.

12 Things I Have Noticed From The Email From This Fake Paypal Account:

  1. When you click on the link, the URL is not the Paypal website. This is the link that will show in your browser's URL:
  2. The email did not address me on my first name.
  3. The "CUSTOMER" was spelled incorrectly.
  4. There was a prevalent wrong grammar issues on the email.
  5. The font used was wrong for the PayPal logo.
  6. There is a sense of urgency which is very doubtful.
  7. The log-in module is wrong.
  8. Copyright dates are wrong.
  9. The links below the fraudulent page is not even clickable.
  10. The email was sent through another website host.
  11. My credit card is definitely NOT SUSPENDED.
  12. This is the most important one. Copy the email address and you will notice that the small letter "i" was used instead of the small letter "l". They both look the same at first glance but when you scrutinize the email, they are definitely not the same. It really depends on the font that you use on your browser. This is the email address of the sender: via 

The screenshot of the log-in page of the fraudulent website from the fake Paypal email. Check the labels I have inputted.

The screenshot of the fake Paypal email. Check the labels I have inputted.

UPDATE 1: I received another email coming from the same sender. Below is the screenshot of the second fake Paypal email.

Screenshot of the same fake Paypal sender with different subject line.
UPDATE 2: I immediately received a reply from the authentic Paypal thanking me for the forwarded fake email. I just hope some readers will become aware, wary and cautious of emails coming from fraudulent email senders who are just out there to illegally obtain our personal information.

Thank you for reading this post and have a nice day.

12 Ways to De-Stress At The End Of The Day

Reposting a good article I have read while trying to figure out on what to do next after a short workout trying to relieve stress.

  1. Leave your work at the office 
    • The best way to de-stress at the end of the day is to leave your work at the office. Finish what you have to finish and then call it a day. Rid your mind of your to-do lists and other problems because you’ll have the next day to tackle it all. For now, let it all go.
  2. Have a good dinner
    • There’s just something about a good, warm meal that comforts you and makes you forget about all the stress of your day once you have that first bite. Go to your favorite restaurant and order that one special dish as your reward for a hard day’s work.
  3. Have a drink
    • Is that good meal not cutting it? Try having a drink (or two) to loosen up a bit and relax. CNN says, “At the ‘slight buzz’ level, alcohol is a social lubricant which often improves mood. You start to let go of a few worries, pay attention to the moment with friends.” Be careful not to go overboard though! You don’t want to nurse a hangover the next day on top of accomplishing all of your tasks.
  4. Treat yourself
    • You’ve been working hard all day. Walk over to the mall and treat yourself with a new pair of shoes, or new clothes. Even something as simple as ice cream will do. Treat yourself to anything, big or small, and go home happy and content.
  5. Do some yoga and release all that tension
    • If you’ve never tried yoga before, now is a good time to start. For beginners, you can check out Yoga with Adriene. For 20 minutes every day, calm your mind and feed your soul by following Adriene’s yoga for beginners’ video. You can also try her 30 days of yoga program, free on her website. You’ll find that even simple breathing exercises can change your mind set and help you relax for the rest of the day.
  6. Watch your favorite show or read a book
    • Escape your world and enter into another with your favorite show or book. There’s just something about these fictional worlds that make us forget about the one we exist in. Get lost in the pages of your favorite book and then have a good night’s rest.
  7. Listen to music
    • Even during your stressful work day, you can put on your earphones and listen to music to calm down or let loose. If you don’t already have the Spotify app on your phone, download it. There are a bunch of Spotify playlists that you can choose from to match your mood. Choose beats that will calm you down or pick you up – whichever you prefer.
  8. Go for a run
    • Don’t have a gym membership? No problem! Go for a run in your village or around your street and release those endorphins! When you go running, researcher MK McGovern says, “These endorphins tend to minimize the discomfort of exercise, block the feeling of pain and are even associated with a feeling of euphoria.” Get that runner’s high and get fit at the same time.
  9. Hang with friends
    • You probably talk to your friends all day in your various groups on Viber, Whatsapp, Line, or social media platforms. But being in their company is a whole lot of fun too! Catch up with friends after work and end your day with a lot of laughter and a warm heart.
  10. Have a hot shower
    • Get into the shower and lather on calming lavender bath gel, or any other scented bath gel you have lying around. Allow the hot water and scents to relax you and help you get ready for a good night’s rest.
  11. Have a massage
    • We’re lucky to have a lot of home massage centers all around the metro so that we can just call and enjoy a soothing massage in the comfort of our own homes. Book a massage and let your masseuse help you get rid of all that tension in your body.
  12. Get a good night’s sleep
    • Nothing is as comforting as finally ending your day in your soft and comfy bed. Make sure to go to bed early so you can have a long sleep to prepare you for the next day.
