    Well...how would the phishing scammer know who to email? (ok maybe he got ahold of lik-sang's email database)

    Also www.ljk-sang.com redirects to www.lik-sang.com.

    I accidentally put in the wrong pass and the paypal page knew it was wrong. Then I put in the correct pass and it worked. So maybe it's legit?

    Anyone can set up an address to redirect to anywhere.

    I put in fake passwords both times. The first time it doesn't work, the second time it did. Go figure..

    well they actually bought OUR email database for $3,000 [​IMG] j/k

    about the paypal account check being fake or not, I think you might have made a mistake by giving your real password...
    because it's technically possible to check an account name & passwords validity even from a page that isn't on Paypal servers!

    yeah, go it this mornin' too. i really hope lik-sang.com didn't sell their
    account email database.

    spotted it pretty fast too. it's too bad that people will get ripped off because they trust lik-sang.
