Happy Saturday: Malicious PayPal Sites

September 14, 2020

DarkCyber spotted “10 Malicious PayPal Sites.” The write up consists of a list of sites, which the wise Web surfer may wish to avoid. Each of the sites contains the string “paypal” in its name. The domains are interesting as well; for example, “verifiedly” and “watch4dollar.” What’s interesting is that existing cyber security methods are not flagging or filtering these sites. Even more disturbing is the idea that a person would click on a site named “paypalsupport.” If anyone has tried to obtain support from PayPal, the idea that a legitimate PayPal site would offer useful information to a user with a question is a tip off that something is not in line with normal PayPal behaviors.
