Please note that the scammers can change the payment amount in the email message, so look out for the same email message with a different payment amount.

If you click on the "open a dispute" link, you will be taken to a fake PayPal login page. If you enter your user name and password on this page, it will be sent to the scammers behind these phishing PayPal websites.

Two of the email messages I have received so far, have links to the following websites:

  • hxxp://www.m-noack .de/uploads/template/coalais/
  • hxxp://www.disijax.com/images/photo/index.html

With your PayPal credentials, these scammers can sign into your PayPal account and steal your money by transferring it to another account or purchase goods and services online.

If you were tricked into entering your PayPal user name and password, by clicking on a link in one of these email messages, please change your PayPal password.
