Heads up on more scam spams
I've got my email on several webpages, so I tend to receive scam emails early in the process. The ones that say your account is being terminated, suspended, or needs info refreshed, look utterly genuine down to the images, and have a link to click on (which actually doesn't take you to that link at all), where they wlll grab your account data, credit card data, you name it.
I get several fake Paypals a week, at least one fake Ebay, have gotten so many for Chase Bank (where I've never banked) that I put it on spam blocker, and still some get through. Got one for Wells Fargo the other day.
Today came a first -- a scam spam for Amazon.com.
There are indications the scammers are getting fancy, hiding folders on other people's webpages. I assume the folder either stores the data for their retrieval, or redirects the data.
UPDATE: yep, you can hover the mouse over the link, or check the source code. But sometimes they get fancy and you have to look close. The link may be to something like "paypal.uk" or "pavpal.com" or "login_paypal.com"
