PayPal Scam - "Our Team Found Unusual Activities On Your Account" at "paypai-gateway.com"

The email message below: "Our team found unusual activities on your account. Check Now! (PP ID#357-732-189-080)," which claims that recipients' PayPal accounts have been limited because significant changes in their accounts were noticed, 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.paypai-gateway.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.
