Hi, I got an email from paypal with the subject "update your account". When I point to the link in the email and compare it to what is listed in the bottom bar they don't even come close to matching. I googled the address in the bottom bar and 3 sites came up about phishing.

Is there anywhere to report this to? I did email everyone on my list not to click on the link.

Sorry if this is the wrong forum.

The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
