Graphic example of phishing scam

Just in case there's anyone who still doesn't know how a phishing scam works, here's a graphic example.

Exhibit one looks like a message from eBay's payment system PayPal.

If you click on the link, you are re-directed to Exhibit Two. At first sight it looks like the Paypal website, but if you check the address at the top you'll see that the people who want your email address and Paypal password are hiding behind some obscure site with a German suffix.

The simplest way to beat the phishing fraudsters is to remember that no genuine organisation - from banks to utilities - will send emails asking you to provide personal details.
