"Your PayPal account has been limited."

Post by TonyWales589 »

Received an unusual email last night from an account claiming to be PayPal stating the following, "Many thanks our system has detected unusual changes in the credit card link to your PayPal account. To unlock your account you need to verify your PayPal to prove that you have done nothing wrong. Click on the link below to unlock PayPal on Your PayPal account will automatically unlock after finishing the account verification as soon as possible".

Do you'll think this is a valid email from PayPal cause I highly doubt it

All inputs are much appreciated.

Thanks
Tony

Hi TonyWales589,

The link is fraudulent. For future reference, you can transfer (Not copy/paste but transfer) these e-mails to spoof@paypal.fr or spoof@paypal.com and you'll receive a confirmation from Paypal if the e-email is true or not.
