Dear PayPal Customer,

We have recently noticed more login attempts to your PayPal account from a foreign IP address and we have reasons to believe that you have been the victim of an identity theft. If you have recently accessed your account while traveling, the unusual login attempts may have been initiated by you.

However, on 09.01.2008, 01:29PM, a suspicious $149.98 withdrawal has been made from your account to an Albanian bank account.

Access to your PayPal account and funds has been temporary suspended until we can verify the account ownership. Please click here to access the PayPal website and follow the steps to reactivate your account and confirm or cancel the withdrawal. To protect our customer accounts and to prevent future account hijacking or identity theft, one of our team merbers will manually verify the information you provide. After submitting the form, please send a fax to (1)484-993-0195 (Paypal Security Department) with a copy of your ID or driving license and a copy (front and back) of a credit/debit card associated with this account. Failing to do so whithin 24 hours will result in account termination and severe legal actions.

Please click here to confirm account ownership.

We apologize for any inconvenience that we've may caused you and stay assured that your online security is our first priority.

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.
