Coinbase Corporation PayPal Scam and Fraudulent Email

Coinbase Corporation PayPal Scam and Fraudulent Email

The fake PayPal Coinbase order confirmation email below, which claims the recipients have sent a payment to Coinbase Inc, and have the option of cancelling it, is a phishing scam. The fake email is being sent by cybercriminals to trick PayPal users into contacting them via the fake PayPal technical support telephone number 1 888-288-5211.

    Just got this scam as of 17 November 2022. Looks authentic because it's sent from a genuine e-mail address! How they did it, I have no idea.

    Report it as spam, delete it and move on with your day...
