Beware of Fraudulent and phishing Email attacks

Hello visitors, Recently my mail box are getting flooded with Phishing mails to hack through my Paypal account and other online bank accounts.
To prevent getting befooled by these fraudulent attacks
  • Always go to your login page by typing in the address of the website not by clicking on the link that has been mailed to you.
  • Or,you can copy the link given in mail and paste in the address bar of the web browser you are using but I suggest you never prefer to do so and NEVER EVER CLICK ON SUCH LINKS
  • Always believe on your banking service provider or website on which you having your account...they will never send you a mail to give your personal details or what ever!!
  • Always complain for any such suspected attacks to safeguard those who are unaware of all these.
So be aware!! Be Secure!!

Here i am giving the phishing email i got....Check out the link given as http://paypal.com actually takes you to a different website with perfectly copied paypal like page.
