PayPal users, be aware of fake PayPal emails claiming that you have sent payment to Klook Travel and you have the option of canceling it. The fake or phishing email messages are being sent by cybercriminals to trick PayPal users into clicking on a link within them that goes to a fake or phishing PayPal web page. The fake webpage will then attempt to steal PayPal credentials and credit card information. So, it is important that PayPal users remember never to click on a link to sign into their PayPal accounts. They should instead, always go directly to www.paypal.com.

The link in the fake email message goes to a fake PayPal website 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 log in from there.

    My friend and I were caught by this scam. She sent money to me and then got this Klook Travel response. Fortunately, she cancelled the payment directly through the PayPal site when she got the message, rather than through the email. Thank you to this OnlineThreatAlerts site, because now I understand what happened. PayPal was completely unhelpful. I think their customer service team is not properly trained to manage potential fraud related to payments that are between individuals, rather than through a business. If not for this article, I would have still been in the dark about what was going on.

    I recieved this e-mail as well, similar to the ones posted here. The things that caught my eye that put up red flags are the following:

    1. The From: and To:

    • The e-mail says from

    service@paypal.com to customer@live.com

    - If you click on the

    service@paypal.com to expand it, you

    will see that the email is connected to

    duars0_memekasemnih.35471@...PayPal

    service e-mails (in my experience) don't

    come attached to other e-mails.

    - PayPal will send e-mails to YOU. It

    literally says..To: You followed by YOUR

    e-mail.

    2. The e-mail (for me anyway) says Receipt number in smaller font, instead of Transaction ID with big numbers.

    I hope this helps you spot the scams and as always never click a link your not sure about and log in directly to your PayPal or other accounts to verify any transactions. Stay safe and vigilant. Happy holidays!
