I was almost victim of credit card fraud. [https://www.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=p/gen/email-security]
Anyone with a PayPal account should beware of fraudulent emails. The one I got took me to a page where it asked to verify my debit card number, the name on my account, the security number on the back, the PIN, and my social security number. I got susipcious of it asking for my PIN, and I then noticed that none of the "links" on the site worked, so I quit Safari and then logged into the real PayPay, where I found the above information.
That's a bit scary. My student loan money could have been gone in the blink of an eye.
'Tis the season for credit card thieves. Beware all.
