Fake PayPal email

I just received an email:

[From: <removed email address> On Behalf Of service @

Subject: PayPal Payment Notification and Confirmation :Routine Code(QQ667-PQ688-PP5688) Received form <removed name> (<removed email address>) Confirmed]

Some of the email links in the email match the text. Others link to "<removed email address>" and "<removed email address>".

It also lists a Transaction ID with apears to be fake. The status of the payment request is still pending.


I'll provide the shipping information if it's verified that this is a scam.

Re: Fake PayPal email

Hi vicw1025,


Welcome to the forum!


If ever you have a doubt about the validity of an email that claims to have been sent from PayPal, you can forward it to to have it reviewed.


You did the right thing by checking your PayPal account to see if there was a transaction. That will always be the safest barometer of legitimacy.


I hope this helps!
