Watch out for Paypal Fraud

OK, this is probably the most off-topic, completely un-sports related post I have ever made. But they almost got me, so I’d like to warn you. Check out the email I got from “Service Paypal,”

You have added jhonnyk33@hotmail.com as a new e-mail address for

Obviously I did not authorize that address, so I was about to follow the link and enter my information to remove that email address….when boom! I realized that the site I was on was the fraudulent one. The email address they sent it from was service@paypals.com with an “s.” Those bastards were trying to get me to input my info so they could raid my account. They almost got me. Just a heads up to watch out for it so it doesn’t happen to you. Bastards. Why don’t they get a life. Or better yet, a job.

    Good catch, Larry. I wish someone would take that website and enter a bunch of BS information that would take them for a “ride”.

    Too bad there aren’t tighter anti-fraud regulations and penalties for this type of internet use, such as “two years in Afghanistan searching for Osama”.
