Please be aware when you receive the paypal email which mentioned that your paypal account had been limited due to unauthorized transactions. It might be a scam email just like the MayBank scam email and CIMB scam email that I received several months ago.
How to know whether the email is spam mail or not?
1) Please refer to the image captured above, the email was captured in spam mailbox. Therefore, high posibbility it’s a spam mail where Gmail provider had blocked it from entering your inbox. However, in order to make sure the originality of the email, you should look at the address of email sender. In my case, it shows the sender address <email@example.com> and obviously it’s not email from paypal company.
2) I don’t understand why we need to download the form attached and open it in a web browser instead of opening it from the link directly? Therefore, I suspect that the attachment contained spyware or trojan which will send your account password to the unknown sender <firstname.lastname@example.org>. So, be careful about this and don’t even download the attachment.
3) The best way to determine the originality of the email sender is to forward the suspicious email to Paypal company and let them tell you the truth. I believe by taking some precautious measures, we can prevent our important identity info from leaking out to other bad people. Please tell your friends and family members about this scam email so no one will fall into their traps.
So, do you receive any kinds of paypal scam email like this recently? Please share.
