Beware of "PayPal Your Account in Danger of Closure" Phishing Scam

The "PayPal Your Account in Danger of Closure" email below is a phishing scam. Therefore, PayPal users who have received the same message, which claims that their accounts are in danger of closure, should delete it. This is because the message is phishing scam sent by cyber-criminals to trick PayPal users into visiting a fake PayPal website where their account credentials (usernames and passwords) will be stolen by the same cyber-criminals. The cyber-criminals will then use the stolen credentials to hijack their victims’ PayPal accounts and use the accounts fraudulently.

PayPal Activity Unauthorised Access

Paypal users should always go directly to www.paypal.com and sign into their accounts when they receive email notifications, instead of clicking on the links in the same email notification. Once they have sign-in, they will be notified of changes or updates. Doing this will prevent PayPal users from becoming victims of phishing scams.

PayPal users who have been tricked by the phishing scam, should change their passwords immediately and check their accounts for discrepancies, and report those discrepancies (if there is any) to PayPal.
