How to Ensure Emails are From PayPal
Check the greeting. We always address you by your first and last name, or the business name on your PayPal account
See if the email asks for personal information. A PayPal email will never ask you for any of the following:
- Bank account numbers
- Debit and credit card numbers
- Driver's license number
- Email addresses
- Your full name
- Your password, or answers to your PayPal account security questions
Check for attachments. We will never send an attachment or software updates to install on your computer.
If you think you've received a fraudulent email, forward the email to email@example.com and then delete it from your mailbox. You can also click here for more information on our Safety Advice centre.
