BEWARE SCAM EMAIL GOING AROUND ABOUT PAYPAL!
Hi everyone! This is no spam from myself so don’t be alarmed!
I don’t normally post this kind of stuff but because this scam email was in my inbox instead of junk I thought I should warn everyone as it was a bit alarming.
I received an email this morning from someone pretending to be paypal, telling me that my account information needed to be updated as I now have limited access. Do not click on the link that says click here!
Thankfully I have always been wary with emails from people I do not know and most of the time it goes into my junk. I am posting this as so many people have been apparently caught out and people like my mum (who hardly uses the Internet) would not recognise that this is a scam if she received the email.
This email is definitely trying to steal your personal information and I have forwarded the email to PayPals scam team (firstname.lastname@example.org).
I will include a picture below that includes the original scam email which I forwarded to PayPal so that you know what to look for if you receive one, I drew over one part of the email that “had” my account number.
