Just a quick warning to all. I received an email today purporting to be from PayPal regarding an payment to 'Skype? co uk' (no dots). It had all the links to click for reporting and paying but a quick cut and paste revealed the true destination of the links. I forwarded it to spoof@paypal.com and received confirmation within 2 hours that it was indeed a phish.

It had all the correct info on it so were I less aware, bad stuff could have happened.

Be carefull guys and gals.

In hotmail - when you hover you mouse pointer over any link in an email - at the bottom left of the screen it brings up the actual website. Might be the same for other online email sites.
