Recently there has been quite a few occurrences of “Paypal scams” – Hackers sending emails with mis-leading subject titles and content, leading to recipients’ feeling of panic.
The victims will then go on to log in to their paypal account using the url provided, and easily give their account info away to the hackers – who will of course get access to their Paypal accounts. What will happen next? We all know..
Here are a few screenshots that I took from the email I received.

Notice the sender email:
Remember that if Paypal wants to limit you, they will limit you straight away anyway (Lol), so they won’t be sending you an email to ask you to log into your account.
Also, when receiving emails which ask you to log into your account, always be extra vigilant and verify/check out the email addresses, the email content and of course use a little “common sense” to think thru if that particular email makes any sense.
When in doubt, always seek a second opinion.
