I am very computer savvy and have worked in IT and IT security for over 10 years I got an email from PayPal related to a credit card payment (I had not used Paypal for some time)

It was sent from an address with a full stop in the wrong spot and very difficult to pickup as the writing and details used were the same as normal PayPal services. I was busy at the time and broke the number 1 rule, clicked the link contained within an email

The web page i was directed to was identical to PayPal. Luckily at this point I realized my mistake and passed the information to PayPal before entering the details.
