    It should have a secure lock on the address bar saying Paypal, Inc. (US)

    Just make sure your address bar says Paypal.co.uk / Paypal.com :thumbsup:

    do this:

    click start => run => type in cmd and press enter
    then in dos prompt which show's up type "ping paypal.com"
    you will get an answer like:

    Pinging paypal.com [66.211.168.209] with 32 bytes of data:

    (not necessarily the same number combination)

    then type ping -a
    you should get something like

    C:\>ping -a 66.211.168.209

    Pinging node-66-211-168-209.networks.paypal.com [66.211.168.209] with 32 bytes of data:


    if your response has *.paypal.com in its name, then that means that your hosts file is not "tampered" with, and by going to paypal.com you are pretty sure that you are going to the right site (oh! as long as you don't go via a proxy: for that check your internet explorer settings)

    these are the two ways i can think a hacker could spoof paypal (tempering your hosts file to send paypal.com to another server, and changing the way proxy works to send you to another site)

    cheers
