WARNING!! PayPal Phishing Scam

    Beware of an email from "Paypal" stating a transaction has been processed through the Anero's website and to click on the link to View/Cancel your order.

    Yup, this is a real scam.   I'd emphasize stumpy's feelings with a "do not click on that link to View/Cancel..."

    I had four of these last month and all were directed to my gmail account (which is not the account I use for business transactions.)   None were related, time-wise, to any orders I'd placed with the Aneros store.   I immediately changed my Forum password and the gmail address in my profile.   I checked my Paypal account and found that there were no bogus transactions. 

    remember also to check any/all links in that phishing email.  Look for something like  www.paypal.gl.com  or an email address like < customer_service@paypal.gl.com >.   Don't respond to bogus addresses like those.   Instead forward the email to paypal's security folk:  < spoof@paypal.com >.

    @CT - Seeing that this and the other post here:

    https://www.aneros.com/forum/discussion/14309/spoof-alert

    ...are important to Aneros forum users security, wouldn't it make sense to merge these two threads and make a temporary sticky of this?

    Sorry I didn't see the other one till after I posted this.

    But I agree that maybe it should be stickied to the top.

    Aneros themselves have sent out an email warning about this scam. I got a copy of the warning this morning.
