    I clicked on the link just for grins, it brought me to a PAYPAL site...looks the same, so I opened the REAL paypal site...other than the HTTPS int he title, it looks identical...

    Now, when I put in a fake user name ([email protected], password of F***off) AMAZINGLING it worked!


    I know a few people who got scammed...

    The link takes you to:
    http://www.mspbs.gov.py/.paypal-sk/u...gin/login.html

    this is a pretty good one and can see how it gets people.

    the home page for the site is:
    http://www.mspbs.gov.py/uoc/2005_index.php

    which is in another language, cannot tell if this is a scam page as well.

    Good Looking out...

    A good rule is to never go to a site you do business with thru email link but rather go to that site on the web the same way you always do and check on anything that an email alerts you to
