    Possible 'phishing' attempt from spurious PayPal

    Just received confirmation that it is a fake website from PayPal. Yeah I'm normally very suspicious of emails purporting to be from various companies.This particular one was actually addressed to me by name,first and surname, and looked very convincing,even down to hovering mouse over 'link',which had an https prefix,but gut feeling I suppose compelled me to log onto my account through the usual channels on my computer. Dave.
  2. Just a heads up about a possible phishing attempt from a suspicious PayPal account.Just checked my emails and had a suspicious email asking me to update my browsers to comply with PCI DSS legislation by 30th June.PCI DSS is data protection for business's using credit card machines and is really nothing to do with the general public.Went online to my PayPal account and there is absolutely nothing on there about updating browsers.Have forwarded suspicious email to spoof@paypal.com Be careful out there folks,there are some bad barstewards about. Dave.

    IWM London Visit - is it me? Or what is the point..

    Yes,and unfortunately,because of the numbers going through the door,it will be classed as a success,and the powers that be will see that as a reason to keep that particular business model on the go. Never been to Hendon,and it looks like it will remain so after reading that link article. Disgruntled Dave..........or what do I know,nothing!

    Whats with the wearing of a baseball cap the other way round?Do not get that at all,why don't they just cut the brim off,wear whats left and complete the picture of a dork.Haven't got anything against hats by the way Dave.

    Yes it was impressive,and a bit scary.But the thing that got me was the cat slept through the whole lot,normally if you bang a bucket she practically freaks out! Dave.

    I have a theory regarding the majority of brain dead drivers.I think they may be on prescribed medication.3 times in a week on 1 particular stretch of road near a doctors surgery,drivers have pulled out in front of me without looking.This is when I become very windmill like with my arm gesturing,but to no avail,they are clueless!!

    East Midlands Model Show - Hinckley 20/5

    Just been into town and spoke to a traffic warden,there are no parking restrictions on the roads unless there is a sign stating restrictions or double yellow lines,but just check if you are parking on the road,there should be a little sign that states restrictions Mon to Sat only.If this is the case,you can park there all day.

Drive safe,and don't forget the Corner Café,they're open from 0600 and serve a great 'Big boys brekkie',nomnomnom. Dave.
