PayPal persists in sending phishing-friendly emails

PayPal persists in sending phishing-friendly emails

PayPal is still sending out customer emails with embedded logon links. When will they get a clue?

In the past week I've received three email messages from PayPal, and I'm ready to chew nails.

The messages included multiple hot links, with persuasive marketing drivel urging me to click on the links and log on to my account. In fact, in all respects they were just like high-quality phishing emails with the single exception that the links go to the and websites.





This has been brought up many times, for sooo long. We can all clearly see that this sort of behavior is not proffesssional, nor responisible, wise, etc...

So why do they keep doing it? The real possibilty exists that they are behind the phishing emails, and they are training and or conditioning people to click the links.

Look at everything else they've been caught doing.

Simple as that.


To add even more weight to that notion, most hackers, scammers and phishers know by now that you can just buy  fake paypal accounts, or take them over easy as pie!
