Warning: Possibly Paypal Scam or hacked? (Your email provided may treat this as trusted sender)

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I just got an email from Paypal Service saying i have invalid information, and possible will limited my account if i dont take action and tell me to go login, but when i hover my mouse over the link, is giving displaying some weird address

h t t p: / / g o o .g l/ / / / //////////////////////////////BEUO0N (I deleted alot of /////////// and space out the link so you don't click on it by accident)


If you got a similar email, i would recommend you to just delete that message, report to paypal directly, and change your password on paypal (using legit website) just in case,

My screenshot of the email i got





odd that outlook treating this as trusted sender

i also checked my paypal, no open case, nothing about me need to change any information, all seems normal to me

I never click on a link in an email. Instead, I go directly to the site. I've had a couple of bogus emails in the past month or two purporting to be from Paypal.

ya, thats what i do usually, legit company usually never ask you to log in by clicking here from the email. Macys usually sent you email or HSBC bank that tell you, to log in to see your monthly statement, but never about security concern or some information need to be updated
