The link in the fake email message goes to a fake PayPal web page on a compromised website that was designed by cyber-criminals to trick their potential victims into entering their PayPal username, password and credit card information. If the requested information is submitted by the potential victims, it will be sent to the cyber-criminals, who will use it to steal their money and use their accounts fraudulently.
If you are tricked into submitting your PayPal credentials and credit card information on the fake web page, please change your PayPal password immediately and contact your bank and let them know that you have submitted your credit card information on a phishing website. And, remember never click on a link to sign into your PayPal account, always go directly to: www.paypal.com and login from there.
