Phishing

I received an email purporting to be from PayPal and asking for login details to PayPal account. Having researched and worked in the field of data protection, I decided to look at the link (see http://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=login-run). This is an exact copy/replicate of PayPal website. You can email PayPal at spoof@paypal.com so that they can check whether this is genuine. Again, if you receive emails asking for personal details, it is always advisable to delete this and doublecheck with the company by forwarding the email to the company. Anyway, there are a few websites on phishing activities.
