I recently received this e-mail which was supposedly from PayPal and
I was am immediately suspcious when it says I need to update my
account with a link to update. I right clicked the link and retrieved the
address from the properties. I then Googled this address 126.96.36.199
and came up with this link https://safeweb.norton.com/report/show?name=188.8.131.52
Surprise surprise, Norton shows this address as a Phishing attack threat.
Therefore, if you receive a similar email, don’t click on their link.
