Beware of "PayPal You Sent a Payment Transaction Receipt Confirmation" Phishing Scams

PayPal users are asked to be on the lookout for fake PayPal email messages like the one below with a fake transaction or order receipt, which claim that they have sent money. The fake or phishing email messages are being sent by cybercriminals to trick PayPal users into clicking on a link within them that goes to a fake or phishing PayPal web page or website. The fake web page or site will then attempt to steal PayPal credentials and credit card information. So, it is important that PayPal users remember never to click on a link to sign into their PayPal accounts. They should instead, always go directly to www.paypal.com, sign into their accounts and check their accounts for transactions.
