The link in the fake email message goes to a fake PayPal website at hxxps://webapps-dispute.redirectme.net/signin/ that was designed by cyber criminals to trick their potential victims into entering their PayPal username, password and credit card information.

If the requested information is submitted by the potential victims, it will be sent to the cybercriminals, who will use it to steal their money and use their accounts fraudulently.

If you are tricked into submitting your PayPal credentials and credit card information on the fake web page, please change your PayPal password and contact them for help immediately. Also, contact your bank and let them know that you have submitted your credit card information on a phishing website.

Remember, never click on a link to sign into your PayPal account, always go directly to www.paypal.com and login from there.

    Same here in Norway. A tip: Hover the mouse over the "Click To Dispute This Transaction" link. The adress shows to be

    "hxxps://goo.gl/MDDfHj.

    Now, thats FISHY.

    Got exactly the same email 2X today...

  • November 13, 2018 at 2:59 PM by an anonymous user from: Richardson, Texas, United States

    Got this exact same email today in North Carolina. Word for word identical. Thanks for confirming the scam!

  • November 13, 2018 at 2:59 PM by an anonymous user from: Belfast, Northern Ireland, United Kingdom

    Had it twice today, forwarded it both times to spoof@paypal.co.uk, let's hope they can do something to help catch them

  • November 13, 2018 at 1:35 PM by an anonymous user from: Clarence-Rockland, Ontario, Canada

    yes, had it to today.

  • November 13, 2018 at 1:12 PM by an anonymous user from: Riverside, California, United States

    Received two (2) of these emails today hours apart.

    Same amount $47.99 for gaming mouse purchase SCAM.

    Besides this website PayPal needs you to forward the "spoof" email to spoof@paypal.com and then delete both received and sent/forwarded email.

    For your protection, go into settings and have all emails only open in TTY (Text Mode) never HTML.

    You can enable HTML on emails you want to open and run much less risk of infection as even hovering over a popup link with your mouse, not even clicking can run malicious code.

    They did a decent job of faking a PayPal page but if you notice the indicated link on the received email it has the word receipt spelled incorrectly.

    Never click a link as suggested in this warning. Especially when website or email names are close but misspelled.

    Obvious fake,

    especially since it does not have your full name, or even PayPal username!
