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.
