Beware of "PayPal We've Notice an Unauthorized Activities" Phishing Scams

PayPal users who have received the message below with the subject: "We need your help to resolve unauthorized activities," should delete it. This is because the message is phishing scam sent by cyber-criminals to trick PayPal users into visiting a fake PayPal website where their account credentials (usernames and passwords) will be stolen by the same cyber-criminals. The cyber-criminals will then use the stolen credentials to hijack their victims’ PayPal accounts and use the accounts fraudulently.

Please continue reading below.

The Phishing PayPal Email Message

Subject: We've notice an unauthrozied activities

We need your help to resolve unauthorized activities

Dear,

We just wanted to confirm that you've changed your password. If you didn't make this change, please check information in here. It's important that you let us know because it helps us prevent unauthorised persons from accessing the PayPal network and your account information.

We've noticed some changes to your usual selling activities and will need some more information about your recent sales.

Confirm your email

Tips to help protect your password:

Never share your password with anyone.

Create passwords that are hard to guess and don't use personal information. Be sure to include uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, and symbols.

Use different passwords for each of your online accounts

Sincerely,
PayPal

Paypal users should always go directly to www.paypal.com and sign into their accounts when they receive email notifications, instead of clicking on the links in the same email notification. Once they have sign-in, they will be notified of changes or updates. Doing this will prevent PayPal users from becoming victims of phishing scams.

PayPal users, who were tricked by the phishing email messages, should change their passwords immediately and check their accounts for discrepancies, and report those discrepancies (if there is any) to PayPal.
