a Virus in email links not from PayPal

Recommended Posts

Hi,

You probably know about this scam but in case you dont I'm posting this.

I got an email yestereday that looked suspicious, I copied it and sent it to PayPal

to check that they did or did not send it.

I got a reply an hour ago stating that they did NOT send it, and it links to a virus on the "websites" in the email..

If you get one DO NOT click on any of the links, you will get a virus.

This is most of it, I deleted the email after I copied it to PayPal.
