Many People Believe PayPal Settlement Site Is A Scam

from the whoops dept

Last week we pointed out how many people fall for phishing scams while also noting that many people assume legitimate messages are part of phishing scams. Just two days later, PayPal sent out messages to many of their users about a class action lawsuit settlement that entitled many users to some money. I got the email, and was immediately suspicious. It turns out I wasn’t alone. While many people are going to the site (the site actually buckled under all the traffic) plenty have stayed away assuming it was a scam.
