PayPal Notification of Limited Account Access

Another fake Paypal notice.  How do I know it’s a fake?

1)  Look at the email address it claims to have come from.  “”.  Read that carefully – it doesn’t say paypal.

2) If you click on the link in the body of the text it takes you to “……..”  NOT the address of the Paypal website.

NEVER click on a link in a Paypal email.  ALWAYS enter the adress of the Paypal website directly into your browser.  If there is a problem with your account you will see the notification then.

If you think you have accidentally given your Paypal information to a scammer – contact Paypal immediately.
