Anyone else getting email scams?

I keep getting emails from “paypal” about transactions I never made. Obviously I come directly to paypal to check and make sure my account has not been compromised and I check my bank accounts.. I did click on their link and takes me to an obviously fraudulent page. I closed it immediately and have never given my info or responded to them... but its just annoying. Anyone else getting these????... how do I report them???

Re: Anyone else getting email scams?



If its a spoof then NEVER USE ANY LINK.

Firstly if the email/text addressed you as ''Dear Member'' / ''Customer'' / ''Client'' OR your ''email address'' then that confirms its a spoof as paypal would address you by your full name eg Dear John Smith.

Secondly if there was a link OR attachment in that email/text to ''cancel'' any transaction or ''confirm'' any details then again it would be a spoof.

If there was a problem with your account Paypal would not ask you to click on an unsafe link in an email or by downloading an attachment, they would direct you to log in normally and go to the resolution or the message centre for more information.
