Scam Email: Fake PayPal Payment

Here is a good one to watch out for!

The fake email wants you to believe someone sent you a large amount of money via PayPal and that PayPal recommends you withdraw it.

No one sent you money and PayPal is definitely not recommending anything.

The scammer wants you to click on the link, where the link (I won't share it so it won't be active, and I delinked it below in the example) looks something like this:


That can NOT be good. Do NOT click on that link!!! Delete the email and move on. Don't be a victim.
