Folks,
I know a lot of you use Paypal to donate here - - -I just had an e mail(now obviously a scam) and it said my account would be cancelled if I didn`t log in and activate it.

Clicked on the email which contained a Trojan Virus(now fixed). I thought I would just post this as a warning for us all. Incidently the UK Paypal is having maintainance work on it at present
Best
Alastair

Good tip. I never open messages from PayPal unless the title is related to a recent transaction. If I have a question about my account, I always log onto the site directly.

Well, all of this scary stuff may explain the lack of donations! For you "brave" souls that care to donate to ADRSupport by Paypal, please see:

http://www.adrsupport.org/donations.html

If you want to send me a case of unmarked bills, or a check, I can email you my snailmail address.

Thanks!

If you get one of these "paypal" emails and want to make sure it is legit before "clicking" on the link, send it to: spoof@paypal.com

That is Paypal's Security Team, they respond pretty quickly to tell you if it is them or not, in 99.9% of the cases it isnt paypal emailing you.....

I have a PayPal account which I use for Ebay. I use a separate e-mail address for Ebay and PayPal so if I get any e-mails to my other e-mail accounts I know they are fake.

I very very rarely have had spoof ones to the e-mail account I actually use with Ebay and Paypal.
