I've just received an email purporting to be from PayPal. It looks genuine, but is, in fact, a scam. Please read this carefully to make sure you understand it so you don't become another scammer's victim.

According to the details you provided, your PayPal account may have been illegally accessed by some one.

This reference number will appear on the activity page in the amount that will be deducted after 48 hours. If you have any dispute on this transaction, reach us immediately at +44 808 196 2817, or reach us at PayPal Support Center for any assistance.

Note the addressee is Mark Walker, that's the first hint this isn't genuine.

Then there's the American spellings, grammatical errors and the fact I don't have a Medical Health Card. Checking the "from"address does show that it was sent from PayPal, however, this is very easy to spoof.


If you get an email identical, or even similar to this, treat it with caution. Think, before you click.
