The email message below: "Attention: Your Account will be Closed," which claims that there is a problem with the recipients' account and the recipients need to activate their accounts, is a phishing scam. The fake email message was created by cyber-criminals to trick the recipients clicking on one of the links in it, which will take the recipients to a fake and phishing website.

Any information submited on the fake and phishing website will be sent to the cyber-criminals, who will use it to hijack the recipients' accounts. Persons who have already fallen victim to the phishing scam should change their PayPal passwords immediately and check their accounts for any discrepancy. And, never visit the fake and phishing website: "www.validation-secure.com."
