Dear Customer (@hotmail.com) ,
Your accnount needs to update some information for security reasons, our request to follow the instructions:
Please log in to your account and complete the steps to confirm your identity. To help protect your account, access will remain limited until you complete the necessary steps.
Click on the link below to complete this process.
The link in the fake email message goes to a fake PayPal which was created by cybercriminals to trick their potential victims into entering their PayPal username, password and credit card information on it. 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. The cyber-criminals/scammers behind the phishing email message will change the website's name, so look out for similar phishing email messages with links that go to different phishing websites.
If you are tricked into submitting your PayPal credentials and credit card information on the fake web page, please change your PayPal password immediately and 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 log in from there.
