I just opened an e-mail that appeared to come from PayPal and looked like this:

Like a tosser, I clicked on the link and entered my account name and password which then took me to another page which asked me for my financial autobiography!

Realising that this page was on an unsecure link and that I was being asked for too much stuff, I pulled the plug and quickly logged into the real PayPal site and changed my password.

PayPal have confirmed that it's a spoof.

Never ever enter any secure & private info in unsollicted emails, even if they contain a link.

Now that they've got you Paypal data, close the account immediately ! Probably too late already, since they're using it !
