URGENT: PayPal System Problems Dear PayPal User,

Unfortunately today we have had some trouble with one of our computer systems. While the trouble appears to be minor, we are not taking the necessary precautions. We have decided to take the affected system offline and replace it with a new system. Unfortunately this has caused us to lose member data and information. Please follow the link below and log into your account to re-enter your information to be assured none of your prior information has been lost. Please Note: Account balances have not been affected.

Because of the inconvenience, we will be providing all users that repair their missing data their next two incoming transfers for free! You will pay no fees for your next two incoming transfers*. Click Here To Begin the Account Process Thank you for using PayPal!

* - If fees would normally apply, you will not pay anything for the next two incoming transfers you receive. PayPal Security

What Is This?

This Email with the Subject "Update Your PayPal Account" was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Mon, 14 Aug 2006 21:34:07 -0700 and has been classified as a Generic Scam Email. The sender shows as PayPal<service@paypal.com>, although that address was probably spoofed. We recommend that you do not attempt to contact any persons or organizations referenced in this email, as you may expose yourself to scammers and, at the very least, you will be added to their email address lists for spam purposes.

Since you’re here …
we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell. And unlike many informational websites, we haven’t put up a paywall or membership barrier – we want to keep our site as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
