I saw this on Online Threat Alerts. Evidently this scam still has traction, meaning it must still work.
Why screw up a winning formula?
Here’s the story. And yeah, I wrote about it a few times:
– If the email has misspellings and formatting errors, red flag. PayPal’s more professional than that.
– If the note is sent to an email account that is not associated with your PayPal account, definite red flag. Don’t laugh. It`s happened to me a few times.
– Check the sender’s email address. That’ll tell you directly whether it’s from them.
Don’t click on the link. Just. Don’t.
