Tadi pagi saya menerima e-mail dari ‘Paypal’ dengan subject: Remove Limitation . Namun saya curiga alamat asal e-mail tersebut dari email@example.com. Padahal biasanya saya menerima e-mail dari paypal alamat pengirimnya firstname.lastname@example.org.
Selain itu e-mail juga ditujukan untuk banyak alamat e-mail. Isi e-mail itu adalah sbb:
Dear PayPal account holder,
PayPal is constantly working to ensure security by regularly screening the accounts in our system. We have recently determined that different computers have tried logging into your PayPal account,and multiple password failures were present before the logons.
Until we can collect secure information, your access to sensitive account features will be limited. We would like to restore your access as soon as possible, and we apologize for the inconvenience.
Why is my account access limited?
Your account access has been limited for the following reason:

Kecurigaan saya bertambah ketika saya menge-klik link Remove limitation. Link itu mengarah ke halaman yang seolah-olah halaman web asli paypal.
Namun alhamdulillah halaman tersebut sudah di block sama firefox.
Tujuan dari e-mail tersebut adalah mengetahui username dan password paypal kita.
Hati-hatilah jika menerima e-mail seperti diatas. Jangan sembarangan memasukkan username dan password Paypal anda.
