This is a mail i received, from a sender email of paypal_service@19168.com

You will be surprised that people still fall for things like these... even when it is damned bloody obvious when you see this ->   www.paypal.com0m

But again, generally all end users are idiots.

Yet another one.

One of the afternoon last week, someone rang the my door bell. When my mother opened the door, he saw 2 guys with tool bags in hand.

They then told my mother that "the house owner" have arranged for them to come remove the gate and change the lock on the gate, and ask me mother to open the door.

Luckily my mother did not open the door but instead pick up the phone and reply she will "call the house owner" to confirm.

Immediately they respinded no need, as they have got the  wrong address and left immediately in haste.
