Letterboxd Scam Email Subscription and PayPal Cancellation

The Letterboxd PayPal scam email below, which confirms a £49 subscription and 14-day trial from the recipients' PayPal accounts, is being sent by scammers. The aim of the scammers is to frighten recipients into clicking the "Cancel Your Subscription" link in the scam email that contains a link that goes to a phishing website that steals account credentials, personal or financial information, which will be used fraudulently by the scammers.

    I think I have never heard of this one before. there are a lot of scams out there but this is the first time that I have seen it go for the same scam with the Letterboxd at this point in time. on top of that, we have all seen how bigger of a deal it is for a lot of people considering that there are even more problems to see on that end, which makes it even hard for me to understand that it is actually possible to come up with hacks on this one.

    Had the same email on 13 December 2022. Will keep a check on my paypal account. Nothing yet.

    Had the same email showing the same account number on Tuesday 13th December, will regularly check my PayPal account. Has anybody had a payment on their account?

    I had this too. The account number is the same as the one shown in your example...

  • December 15, 2022 at 12:42 AM by an anonymous user from: E2, London, England, United Kingdom

    I’ve also had the same email, I don’t have a PayPal account so I know it’s a scam attempt!

    I also had the same letter yesterday thought it was genuine because there is a legit site called the same. Went to cancel then saw the PayPal message and realised it was a scam. Have reported it to Which . I will also keep an eye on my account in case. The genuine site only charges 14 pound to join.

    Just received this email.

  • December 14, 2022 at 10:56 AM by an anonymous user from: City of London, London, England, United Kingdom

    Had this email yesterday and have assumed it is a scam. Checked site via Google which confirms my suspicions. However will keep an eye on Paypal account to see if any money is taken out.

    had one of these yesterday - treated it the same as all other emails i'm not expecting and ignored it. it is worth keeping an eye on paypal just in case there has been a data breach and usernames and passwords have been compromised, but I think this is unlikely. as another poster has said, this email is far more convincing and looks credible.

    if anyone has clicked the link, change your paypal password immediately, along with any other logins that use the same password.

    What should you do if you have given scammers your password.

    • December 14, 2022 at 8:45 AM by info

      Change all of your passwords.

  • December 14, 2022 at 7:07 AM by an anonymous user from: Aldershot, England, United Kingdom

    I had one of these yesterday, thought it was odd as I don't have Paypal!

  • December 14, 2022 at 6:52 AM by an anonymous user from: WC2, London, England, United Kingdom

    Great information, thanks. The concerning thing is that I recently signed up for an offer with a legitimate subscription TV service and the scammers have also sent me this scam E-mail via an E-mail address I use for PayPal. Passwords etc. have since been changed.

    To the 'un-initiated,' this is one of the more realistic-looking scam attempts.
