Subject: Fw: Notification of Limited Account Access = SCAM SUBJECT, SENDER AND MESSAGE

From: "Senta Setinc" <>

This email with the subject "Fw: Notification of Limited Account Access = SCAM SUBJECT, SENDER AND MESSAGE" was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Fri, 27 Jun 2008 09:30:24 -0700 and has been classified as a Generic Scam.

The sender was "Senta Setinc" <>, although it may have been spoofed.

A few days ago I received a suspicious message from people who called themselves as PayPal Service. The sender address ( was not the one I knew as the address of the PP Service, so I checked with the REAL PayPal (as you can see below), but did not receive any answer from them so far. Maybe you know more? Below is the dubious message from even more dubious PayPal service people.
Thank you and Kind regards,
Senta Setinc

Dear PayPal Service Team,
I have just received this message (see below)  and since the from-address ( differs from the one I already know as being the e-mail address of the PayPal Service, I just wanted to check with you the validity and credibility of the message, before I follow the instructions in the message to provide my credit card number and other details. I shall be waiting for your answer. Thank you!
Best regards, Senta Šetinc
