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