Beware of "PayPal You Submitted an Order Amounting" Phishing Scams

The email message below with the subject: "You submitted an order amounting," which states that the recipients sent a payment and the same email message confirms that their purchases were made, is a phishing scam. The fraudulent email message was created by cyber-criminals to frighten and trick the recipients into clicking the link in it, which will take them to the fake and phishing website. The fake and phishing website, which looks exactly like the legitimate PayPal website, should not be visited and the instructions on it should never be followed. This is because any information submitted on phishing website will be sent to the cyber-criminals, who will use it to hijack their victims' PayPal accounts and use them fraudulently.

Please continue below.

Persons who have already fallen victim to the phishing scam should change their PayPal passwords immediately before their accounts are hijacked, and contact PayPal immediately for help.

It is important that PayPal user remember that they should never sign into their accounts by clicking on a link. They should always go directly to www.paypal.com and sign-in from there instead. This will prevent them from clicking on a link that goes to a phishing website.
