PayPal Phishing Scam - "Your Account Was Opened Form Another Device" at "secpenpal.com"

The email message below: "Your Account Was Opened Form Another Device," which claims that the recipients' accounts were opened from another device and they should renew their information by clicking on a link within it, 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: "www.secpenpal.com". 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.
