PayPal You Sent a Payment to Micro Computer Security LLC Scam

PayPal You Sent a Payment to Micro Computer Security LLC Scam

The fake PayPal email below which claims the recipients have sent payment to Micro Computer Security LLC, and they have the option of canceling it, is a phishing scam. The fake email is 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.

    I just got one of these, only it didn't mention PayPal and didn't have a link. Still, I could have made the mistake of trying to find out about this because my husband died 3 weeks ago and he might have ordered something like that in the past. It had several things wrong with it so I was prepared but I'm grateful found this as it saved me from calling and looking around.

    I just received this email as well a few minutes ago.

    As with any other email of this nature, I do not click on any hyperlink in the email,but I Google the phone number and/or call PayPal directly to discuss the validity of the email.

    So, good on me for not freaking out and clicking on any hyperlink in the email.
