Fake PayPal email

[ Edited ]
I just received an email:

[From: <removed email address> On Behalf Of service @ paypal.com-us

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 spoof@paypal.com 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!
