That url actually points to http ://201.124.126.139/icons/%20/clmv/index. (killing link)php which no doubt contains a trojan or something.

It's also worth noting I don't use and never will use paypal or any other online money thingy.

Horray for scammers getting less creative every day.

My reply was, "Touch my penis."

Even if it was generated by a bot, I think my response is fitting.

Wonder why people bother to send viruses...unless it's to an enemy.I think it's pointless to send them to strangers you don't know.

They want your paypal info so they can jack your cash. It's a common thing nowadays.

"Dear PayPal Online"?
That's a strange greeting...
Well, one obvious thing that tells you it's fake is what they called you by.
Lol And they've also said that they'd never use anything other then your real full name... I think.

They don't even have proper punctuation or formal grammar.

Nom :OUATTARA
Prénom:DIANE
Profession : Comptable/Citibank Côte d’Ivoire

Mes sincères salutations et mes excuses à votre égard.
Avant tout chose, je voudrais m'excuser de mon intrusion dans votre vie privée. Bref, je me nomme Mlle DIANE OUATTARA,Cadre au Département de la Comptabilité à la CITIBANK - Côte d'Ivoire. Un compte a été ouvert au sein de notre banque en 1985 et depuis 1990, aucune opération ne s'est effectuée. Ce compte présente à ce jour dans nos livres, un compte créditeur de 4.5 millions de dollars américains. Après avoir consulté méticuleusement toutes les archives et les dossiers relatifs à ce compte, je me suis rendue compte que je pouvais disposer aisément de cet argent si je réussissais à le virer sur un compte à l'extérieur donc je suis à la recherche d'un partenaire discret et honnête.
Le possesseur de ce compte fut feu John Kouakou, un expatrié, directeur de Petrol-Technical Support Services Inc, ingénieur en chimie, décédé suite à un accident de la circulation. Et, personne ne sait à ce jour l'existence de ce compte. Ce compte ne possède aucun autre bénéficiaire aussi bien dans sa famille que dans son ex-entreprise.
Je voudrais transférer cet argent dans un compte sûr à l'étranger, mais je ne connais personne à l'extérieur. J’ai vu votre site du net, et comme vous êtes dans l’immobilier j’aimerais que vous m’aidiez a transférer cet argent pour investir dans votre domaine ou racheter des immeubles et C'est ainsi que l'idée m'est venue de vous contacter et de vous faire la proposition de virer cette somme sur votre compte bancaire, pour partage, c’est à dire moitié-moitié.
J'ai conscience que ce message vous surprendra car nous ne nous connaissions pas auparavant, mais soyez sûr que c'est une véritable opportunité que je vous offre.
Je vous demande de me répondre le plus vite possible.
Très fraternellement
MLLE DIANE OUATTARA


I just got this.I don't understand french,but the online translators gave a garbled translation which I understand to be one of those 'trapped funds in a bank account' scams.
