PayPal Expands Payments Services To Help Ukrainian Citizens Refugees
A source close to Mel B told the that the star knew nothing of the scam and felt 'violated and angry' that someone would go to those lengths and claim it was in the name of charity, as she is known for her charitable ventures.
PayPal's move will allow refugees and Ukrainians to receive funds from friends and family members in the United States and elsewhere, and could also be used to transfer social payments by governments in the future, said Vladyslav Rashkovan, Ukraine's alternative executive director at the International Monetary Fund.
Attorney for the Eastern District of New York said in a statement that Zagala bragged about successful attacks using his programs, "including by malicious actors associated with the government of Iran."
PayPal said it would start making the expanded services available on Thursday, with customers able to send and receive funds from their Ukrainian PayPal Wallet in dollars, Canadian dollars, British pounds and euros.
Iran's mission to the United Nations called the allegations "baseless." U.S.
authorities in February described MuddyWater as a group of Iran-linked cyber operators and said it had targeted a range of government and private-sector organizations across Asia, Africa, Europe and North America.
Phishers also are increasingly exploiting interest in news and other popular topics to trick people into clicking on links. One e-mail purportedly about swine flu asked people to provide their name, address, phone number, and other information as part of a survey on the illness. And users of social networks are becoming popular targets. Twitter users have been directed to fake log-in pages.

Don't give out personal information requested via e-mail. Legitimate companies and agencies will use regular mail for important communications and never ask customers to confirm log-in or passwords by clicking on links in e-mail.
You can also set your e-mail preferences to show "full header" to see the full e-mail address and other information. Hitting "reply all" may reveal the true e-mail address. The e-mail address may also be obscured. If you are at all unsure whether the e-mail is legitimate, go to the company's Web site to see the address listed.
E-mails that look like they come from the FDIC include a subject line that says "check your Bank Deposit Insurance Coverage" or "FDIC has officially named your bank a failed bank." The e-mails include a link to a fake FDIC site where visitors are prompted to open forms to fill out. Clicking on the form links downloads the Zeus virus, which is designed to steal bank passwords and other information.
WASHINGTON, March 17 (Reuters) - PayPal Holdings Inc on Thursday expanded its services to allow Ukrainian citizens and refugees to receive payments from overseas, a move a senior Ukrainian official called a huge help as Russian forces continued to attack the country.
Rashkovan said he spoke with some Ukrainians on the street outside his office about the new capability and they immediately opened an account at PayPal.com/ua/home website to send money to their relatives.
PayPal Chief Executive Dan Schulman told Deputy Prime Minister Mykhailo Fedorov in a letter that Ukrainians would also be able to transfer funds from their PayPal accounts to eligible credit and debit cards.
The scammer communicated to victims via the chat window, pretending to be from a bank and asking for additional information. Attackers are also turning to instant messaging to lure people into their traps. In one recent scam a live chat window was launched via the browser.
For instance, PayPal displays a "P" and its name is highlighted in green at the front of the URL. The major browsers have antiphishing measures designed to detect malicious sites. That means website will be seen in the URL address bar instead of just website and usually there will be some other change in the address bar. In addition, PayPal, Amazon, banks, and many other businesses use the SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) protocol which is designed to ensure that customers are visiting the real site. Some phishers also try to hide the real Web address they are sending victims to by using URL shortening services.
Criminals will choose addresses that are similar to the one they are faking. For instance, phishers have used "Alerts@Paypal.co.uk." However, legitimate PayPal messages in the U.S. so an address ending in ".uk" or something other than ".com" could indicate it's a phishing attempt. Most phishing e-mails come from outside the U.S. come from Service@paypal.com" and include a key icon. Check the sender information to see if it looks legitimate.
Don't post your e-mail address on public sites. For instance, instead of firstname.lastname@example.org, use email@example.com. Create an e-mail address that is less likely to get included in spam lists. Try to stay off spam lists.
