Serious PayPal scam

Post by twrenn » Mon Feb 04, 2019 4:32 pm

Just saw this on the news 5 minutes ago. Since many of us use PayPal to buy and sell I wanted to pass this along. We all know we get a confirmation from P.P..when we sell and get our money. Now the scammers have devised an extremely convincing email saying pmt was in your account but first the money isn't in your account and second they send this email with a link in it to click on. Obviously do NOT click on any link in the email. Go to your P.P. account first to verify the funds and notify PayPal. Odds are you're out your money and goods. But if you don't fall for this email at least the scammers can't get into your computer and wreak havoc on your data.
