PayPal Phishing Email

thumbs down A new phishing email designed to catch PayPal users. This one should be fairly easy to identify as a phishing attempt, the “story” in the email doesn’t make much sense at all. It just mentions PayPal and that you need to open an attachment.

Here’s the email:

If you see this just delete it. Don’t open the attachment and certainly don’t type your PayPal login details onto the web page it sends you to.
