The "PayPal You Sent a Payment to Google" Phishing Scams

PayPal users, be aware of fake PayPal emails claiming that you have sent payment to Google 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.
