I've received several paypal spoofing emails recently, best advice is make sure the originating email is actually from paypal, I never click any of the links in these phishing emails, the subject of the last one was We're concerned about potentially unauthorized activity on. Date: Sun, Mar 08, 2020 The actual sender when I hovered the cursor over the paypal address was some foreign name, not paypal. I forward them as attachments with all headers to [email protected] Below is their response.

If you get a questionable email about your Paypal account you can forward it to them for investigation.

Suspicious emails
“Phishing” is an illegal attempt to "fish" for your private, sensitive data. One of the most common phishing scams involves sending an email that fraudulently claims to be from a well-known company (like PayPal). If you believe you've received a phishing email, follow these steps right away:

1. Forward the entire email to [email protected].
2. Do not alter the subject line or forward the message as an attachment.
3. Delete the suspicious email from your inbox.
We'll look into it and email you a response to let you know if it is indeed fraudulent. In the meantime, don't click any links or download any attachments within the suspicious email.
