    Bon, outre le fait que je n'ai pas de compte PayPal rolleyes , il y a quand même quelques évidences qui doivent mettre la puce à l'oreille de tout le monde !!
    Tout d'abord l'adresse email de l'expéditeur ... celle qui est entre parenthèse et qui n'est pas modifiable par l'utilisateur ... sauf en ayant quelques connaissances (pas beaucoup)

    c'est subtil mais quand même !!
    Deuxièmement, plus grossier, le lien renvoi vers un site web qui n'a rien à voir avec PayPal ... vu que je l'ai recu dans ma boite gmail, l'URL est directement visible dans la barre de status comme tout lien qui se respecte smile

    Il faut pas être bien malin pour se faire avoir par de tel subterfuge de nos jours ....
    Vous voilà informé
