A nasty PayPal con email
8/21/2005 6:45:04 PM
This PayPal email is not just a scam, but if you click on the Paypal header (not included in this post) you get not one, but two trojans & one virus all trying to affect your P.C. at the same time.

It is also the same with the clickable link, (I guess in case that's if you don't check the header), thats why it is disabled so that you don't get infected & I don't get accused of posting a virus.trojan infected thread.

Back check on this email to see where it originated shows this.

Hi Anthony great set of forums. Thank you for invting me to be friends and giving me access to this information. I have seen a scam or two, but by nature am very suspicious, especially if it looks good. Between you and Eileen Harvey, no scammer should be able to hide in our inbox. Thanks and many blessings to you Linda

Linda. Thank you for your kind remarks about our forums. Yes, hopefully between Eileen H & ourselves, we should hopefully keep the Adlandpro membership a lot safer. Glad you and all of our new friends like our humble efforts.
