PayPal Deception

By Charles

This e-mail I received looks very legit, except for 2 items. First, I don’t use Paypal or Ebay, and second, the link “https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_login-run” in reality shows up on the bottom line of my browser ashttp://www.frenchtickling.com/Videos/CD.htm
So this is either an attempt to get personal info from me or it’s an attempt to get me to go to some porn site. Either way it’s deception!
