    Is this a fake paypal login?

    Reviewing some old threads I thought I'd see what this guy was all about. He's one of those that claims to crack email passwords. Ok, follow this link. Don't imput any information, simply click submit. On the next page follow his link to paypal to pay. Notice it stays his webpage in the address line? It's not secure at all either I don't think? I'm trying to better my security here and start watching for this stuff. Real or fake?? Or am I just going crazy trying to understand this computer stuff

    No, that page it directs you to, where you enter your password and email, is real, it goes directly to [url]www.paypalobjects.com[/url], which is part of paypal. But just because it is a real paypal site doesn't mean he will not just take the ***** and leave you, paypal's website payment services leave it up to you to ensure you get what you want. From what I have seen, it is all a scam, he doesn't even write his own forms, he uses [url]http://www.formmail.com/[/url] to handle the forms. Someone who doesn't even know enough html and php to write a simple input emailing form is not going to be a hacker, he will be a scammer. And the real place his site is hosted is [url]http://64.246.58.*00/~emaieinf/needapassword/faq.html[/url]. In his information page he states that he can't get into inactive accounts, lost passwords, or accounts of deceased people, which tells us he has no real way of hacking it, just some lame social engineering that could or could not work.
