PayPal violates its own rules for web security!
I don't understand. I don't get it.
One of the biggest warnings that Paypal and other financial institutions puts out is "never click on links that are embedded in emails." To do so is to invite the possibility that you click on a fraudulent email with a fraudulent link.
Yet, PayPal has been sending me this email, telling me that I should click on an embedded link to verify my account. This is a valid Paypal email and the link is also valid. But what the heck?!
