Subject: Re: Important - You've just changed your password on your PayPal account from google chrome in Toronto, Canada.
We just wanted to confirm that you've changed your password. Unfortunately, our system detected that your account has been logged from Toronto, Canada.
Please take action on your account soon. It's important that you let us know because it helps us prevent unauthorised persons from accessing the PayPal network and your account information.
Follow this step:
Log in using your account.
Go to the Resolution Center.
Provide the information requested.
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. Once they have signed into their accounts will be notified of changes and other important updates if there is any. 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.
