We at PayPal are writing to alert you to a potential security issue with your account. We have recently become aware of an increase of reports from customers that have received fake emails from an entity claiming to be PayPal asking for personal information such as passwords, credit card numbers, and other confidential information.
Since your account is connected to PayPal, we want to take this opportunity to remind you to never share your login information or any financial information with anyone, including those claiming to be from PayPal. In addition, we ask that you be aware of any suspicious emails or messages sent to you asking for personal information related to your account.
If you suspect that you have received a fake email, we recommend that you do not open it or any attachments and delete it immediately. PayPal will never ask you to send sensitive information via email, so we recommend that you always log in directly to PayPal to verify any requests that may have been made to you.
We understand that we must work together to protect our customers’ information and accounts. Thank you for your help in ensuring the safety and security of our customers’ accounts.
