Beware of "Your Account Has Been Limited Until We Hear From You" PayPal Phishing Scams

The email messages below, which claim the recipients' PayPal accounts have been limited until PayPal hear from them, are phishing scams. The fake email messages have been created by cyber-criminals to trick the recipients into clicking on the links within them that go to fake or phishing PayPal websites that steal personal information, financial information and account credentials.

How to Determine if an Email is a PayPal Scam?

PayPal does not address you as "Dear Customer", "Dear Member", or "Dear PayPal Customer". PayPal always uses your first and last names in the greeting.

Example: Dear John Brown.

And, PayPal will never send an email with a link to enter sensitive information.

To ensure that you are on PayPal's website, your web browser address bar should look like the following:

Paypal Inc web browser address bar

PayPal users who have been tricked by the phishing scam are asked to change their passwords and contact PayPal for help immediately.
