THIS IS HOW IT WORKS

You receive messages similar to the official Paypal confirmation email from the Scammers. This will inform you on your newly purchased PayPal account - whether you opened or not.

There will be a link in the email to cancel the transaction, but in the real sense it's a trick. The link will automatically download malicious malware to your PC. If this is successful it will start receiving your bank information from your PC.

CHECKOUT SOME TIPS FROM THE BBB FOR IDENTIFYING PHISHING SCAMS:



  • Protect Yourself from Phishing Emails:
  •  Call before you click: If something sounds suspicious, confirm it by calling the company or checking the company website. Type the URL directly into your browser or do a web search. DON'T click on any links in unexpected messages
  • Look for misspellings: Look out for spelling and grammar mistakes when dealing with a suspicious-looking email claiming to come from well known companies. Additionally, check the copyright at the bottom of the email - if it looks even slightly different, then it is most likely a fake.
  • Be cautious of generic emails: Scammers try to cast a wide net by including little or no specific information in their fake emails. Always be wary of messages that don't contain your name, last digits of your account number or other personalized information.
