Paypal Scam Emails

Every now and then, you get the occasional idiot who tries to scam some poor user out of their account information by showing information affiliated to the company in question

I received an email from “Paypal” support

I already knew it was dubious from experience, but decided to carefully investigate it. The user in question owned a website (hosted by godaddy) and had a blog with a purposely hidden upload link with a redirect onto a fake paypal login

They’re getting smarter and smarter, but when displaying links to unknown pages, always hover your mouse over them and check out the address first. It should always match the domain where it’s coming from

Needless to say I hate scammers. So I reported the domain abuse to godaddy and rackspace, and I’ll also be reporting them to paypay, eBay and the local authorities

eBay Partner Network

I’m always looking at increasing the revenue available for myself throughout life. One of the things I read about was the eBay Partner Network

Supposedly it generates over 20 times more revenue than google adsense. I’m working on finding this out. I’ve actually been accepted as of yesterday for the eBay Partner Network. I can now run ads for eBay and adsense on my website

I promise they will be minimal, but I’m focussing on Volkswagen and IT documentation on my website so they will be relevant to the content I make

 

EDIT: I just checked my account 00:10 @ 16/08/13 and already at £0.18p earnings, it’s not much but with my adsense ads I get in the region of 1p per month if that. Think my eBay is onto a winner.

 

I’m running a combination of ads on my website, I’m trying not to make them too intrusive but obviously would like to make additional earnings for myself. I did use the eBay sales widget but actually removed it because it was slowing down the loading time for my site
