The link in the fake PayPal email goes to the following phishing website created by cyber criminals:
Online users are advised not to visit and attempt to sign into phishing PayPal website with their PayPal credentials.
The cybercriminals behind the scam will use another website as soon as the current one has been discovered and taken down.
This is why it is important that PayPal users remember never to click on a link to sign into their accounts. They should always go directly to www.paypal.com and sign-in from there instead. This will prevent them from becoming victims of phishing scams, where cyber criminals steal their credentials, hijack their accounts, steal their money, and use their accounts fraudulently.
PayPal users who have already been tricked by a phishing scam, are asked to change their passwords and contact PayPal immediately for help.
