Just found this here on the forum, a statement from PayPal that their own e-mails are phishy, why the hell can this multi million corporation then not make et secure to use the PayPal??


Here is the thread:


/forum/f21/paypal-says-its-own-e-mails-phishy-7151/


Randy Abrams, director of technical education at online security vendor ESET, says he received a genuine e-mail from PayPal, containing a link.


He forwarded the message to the firm suggesting it stop this practice because links make e-mails look like phishing attempts.


PayPal responded, thanking him for forwarding the "suspicious-looking" message, claiming "it was a phishing attempt".


Says Abrams: "That is why legitimate businesses should NEVER include links to log on pages, or most places. Not even PayPal support can tell the difference between a legitimate PayPal email and a phishing attack."


While PayPal, in common with many financial institutions, does include links in e-mails, it advices customers to watch out for "strange links".

Here is the blog post from eset PayPal Admits to Phishing Users | ThreatBlog

Yes, it is true, I am not making this up. I do not believe that PayPal has stolen anything from users, but they have told me that their own email is phishing.
Here’s what happened. I sent them one of their own legitimate emails and told them it was a bad idea to include a link in it because it looks just like a phishing email. Again, this is a real, legitimate email from PayPal that I sent to them.
