Dear Customer,

Please be aware that your PP Account expire in less than 48 H.

It is indispensable to perform an audit of your data is present, otherwise your Account will be destroyed. Just click the link below.

We requests verification whenever an email address is selected as an Account PP. Your Account cannot be used until you verify it.

The link in the fake email message goes to a fake PayPal which was created by cybercriminals to trick their potential victims into entering their PayPal username, password and credit card information on it. 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. The cyber-criminals/scammers behind the phishing email message will change the website's name, so look out for similar phishing email messages with links that go to different phishing websites.

If you are tricked into submitting your PayPal credentials and credit card information on the fake web page, please change your PayPal password immediately and 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.
