If you think you’ve received a suspicious email or have been directed to a fake website, forward it to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll investigate it for you. After you send us the email, delete it from your inbox. If you clicked on any links or downloaded any attachments within the suspicious email or website, log into your account and view your transactions. It’s also a good idea to change your password.
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.
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 email@example.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!
