Beware of "Automatic Secure, Unauthorized Activity from Your Account‏‏‏" PayPal Phishing Scam

The email message below: "Automatic Secure, Unauthorized Activity from Your Account‏‏‏," which claims that the recipients should log into their PayPal accounts to resolve the limitations on them, is a phishing scam. The fake email message was created by cyber-criminals to trick the recipients into clicking on one of the links in it, which will take them to the fake and phishing website: "paypal-limit .center". The fake and phishing website should not be visited and the instructions on it should never be followed, because any information submitted on it will be sent to the cyber-criminals, who will use it to hijack their victims' accounts.

Persons who have already fallen victim to the phishing scam should change their PayPal passwords immediately and check their accounts for discrepancies.
