Examples of the "Nigerian scam" that flood my email box everyday.

Another fake email, allegedly from PayPal, is doing the rounds.

It is not from them, but from a scammer who wishes to "phish" your passcodes from you.

If you receive one of these, do not click on the link but report it to PayPal.

We are currently performing regular maintenance of our security measures. Your account has been randomly selected for this maintenance, and you will now be taken through a series of identity verification pages.

Protecting the security of your PayPal account is our primary concern, and we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

You are receiving this message as a result of our regular accounts verification process. Because we had some problems with our data base, we now need to check identity of our all customers. This account verification process will increase security of our customers account.

In order to verify your identity, we ernestly ask you to visit the following link and to confirm your PayPal account information.
