The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

High-intensity scamming

The ever-popular "PayPal Limited Account Access" scam has arrived at my mailbox, and its execution was a bit more amateurish than usual.

For one thing, the bogus email was sent to an address which has no PayPal account, which is pretty easy to spot. And the spoofed URLs were prodigiously lame: I mean, poypail.com? Sheesh.

The ostensible tech/billing contact for this domain is one James Matlick, 10 Oak Lane, Scarsdale, New York 10583. I do hope he enjoys the publicity.
