[tcMag] PayPal's anti-phishing measures to include browser blocking - Page 3

post #21 of 32
Legitimate e-mails from PayPal will always address you by your registered name (Ie, crazyaz soundx98).
If it's phony sender you are addressed as "Dear Paypal User".

A lot of people get duped into it so read your e-mails carefully.

That's a bit extreme, but I understand that there are a lot of stupid people out there who don't understand that things like this are a problem.
Especially those people that think their Macs are virus-fighting machines, because they're not.

And Marin, is that a new bleeding anus avatar? I like it! Do those dancing creatures have a name?

wow... IE3, what is that win95? win 3.1???

using IE period is bad enough, but IE3? wow. Your just asking for it...

using IE3 is like going to a 3rd world country, looking for a good time, and using a paper bag for your protection, thinking that, this should work just fine. Then you get home and realize that you just go robbed. Then you realize that you are missing your family jewels...
good enough

Speaking of that, does OCN have a really nice thing to show stats?

I know my webhost gives me a quick, easy and nice way of seeing all things related to me site. Such as what kind of browsers are visiting, how many, where, etc..
