NEVER click on a link in a Paypal email, even if you think it might be genuine. ALWAYS enter the address of the Paypal website directly into your browser.
The link included with this scam email takes you to http://mail.fischerxxxxxx (dot)com/us/webscr.htm – I’m sure you can see straight away that this isn’t the real Paypal website. I’ve edited the domain name because it looks as if the scammers have hacked into a legitimate website.
