02 Mar [Scam Alert] PayPal Phishing Emails
December 17, 2020
Did you receive emails from PayPal that claim there are “suspicious activities” on your transaction/account? If you take a closer look, you can find that the word “PayPal” is intentionally misspelled as “PayPal.” Be cautious of these phishing emails!
These spoofing emails pretend to be from PayPal officials although the information such as the company address enclosed may seem legitimate. The buttons included in such emails are phishing links, which will lure you into sending your personal information or financial credentials to the scammers. They can use these data breached on identity thefts or any other scams afterward!
If it’s necessary, please go to the PayPal website or app directly to confirm if the issues raised in the email are legitimate instead of clicking on the links provided in the emails. Or else, you can use Trend Micro Check for immediate scam detection: simply copy/paste the link and send it to Trend Micro Check chatbot!
