However, failure to update your records will result in account suspension. Please update your records on or before July 10, 2007.

To update your PayPal records click on the following link:

Thank you,
PayPal Update Team



The second one is easily discarded since the address it sends you to is not paypal.com

But the first one is a little hard to realize because it can trick you that the link goes to paypal.com but if you hit it takes you to paypal.us. DON'T BE FOOLED

I have received these emails from: no-replyy @ gmail.com, news @ gmail.com, account @ gmail.com, tp-verify @ gmail.com make a note of those adresses and also make a note that paypal is not supposed to be sending such emails AT ALL.

Upon receiving these emails you can send them to spoof @ paypal.com in hope that paypal can do something about them

This technique is very old and for anyone interested in reading more about it, its called phishing

STEP ONE:

Go here: http://www.productreview.com.au/?a_aid=209a22ba to sign up at this affiliate
program. Any one worldwide can sign up for this program. You can find their affiliate
program at the very bottom of the home page. It will be one of the Grey links.
It should look like this...?

Please Note: Make sure you change the way you would like to get paid.
You can choose from: Bank Deposit, PayPal or Check(cheque).

This is how their affiliate system works:

You get $0.05 for every person that clicks on your affiliate link.

You also get $0.50 for every person that writes a review on their site.

Your probably thinking: How am i going to earn $100,000 + dollars if i only get $0.05 for
every person that clicks my link?Well thats where step 2 comes into place.

STEP TWO:

Welcome to Step Two of our program. Now lets continue where we left off. How are you
going to get $100,000 + a month if you only get $0.05 every time someone clicks on your
affiliate link. Lets think of how much clicks we are going to need in order to get
$100,000 each month.

$0.05 x 2,000,000 = $100,000

WOW! Thats a lot of clicks. Now... how are we going to get 2,000,000 clicks?

It's easy! I found two websites that guarantees that you will get 1,000,000 views each
month for FREE. With the 2 websites combined, you will get 2,000,000 visitors each month!
And guess what? IT WORKS!

These two website have allowed me to get 1,000,000 views every month.

Website #2: http://www.freeviral.com/?r=212073

#IMPORTANT# During the sign up process, they will ask you for your website url.
You MUST use your product reviews affiliate link! Or else, how are you going to get
one million visitors? Your affiliate link is the link that product reviews gave you.

See how simple my ultimate FREE wealth system is! All you have to do is promote 2 links
and you will be making thousands monthly!
Lets Calculate our income again: 2,000,000 x $0.05 = $100,000 THATS $100,000 A MONTH!
