Beware of "PayPal Overstock Items Shipped Cancellation" Scam

PayPal users, please be on the lookout for fake emails like the one below, which claim your order or items have been shipped and your PayPal account has been charged. The fake emails are phishing scams being sent by cybercriminals who are attempting to trick PayPal users into clicking on the links in the fake emails. The links or buttons in the fake email go to a phishing website looking similar to PayPal's website, where visitors will be asked to sign into with their PayPal account. But, but any attempts to sign into the fake PayPal website will send the visitors' PayPal credentials to the cybercriminals behind the phishing scam, who will hijack the accounts and use them fraudulently.

Please continue below.

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 they will be able to view payments and other transactions. This will prevent them from becoming victims of phishing scams, where cybercriminals 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.
