The link in the fake email goes to the following phishing and fraudulent website: thepaypaileserver.co.uk

Myfax users who have already been tricked by the scam are asked to change their passwords and contact MyFax for help.

MyFax users should always go directly to https://www.MyFax.com/ and sign into their accounts, instead of clicking on a link in an email message. Once they have signed in, they should be able to view their documents from there. This will prevent them from becoming victims of phishing scams sent by cybercriminals.
