Managed to narrowly avoid getting scammed, any steps I need to take to ensure my account is safe?

Hello,

 

So today I received an email saying that my account was limited, and it asked me to log in on a rather convincing looking website that was secured according to my browser. I logged in and started filling in my info. until I noticed that my password manager somehow does not remember ANYTHING on the site, and despite being a secured site there's no mention of it on Google. Luckily however, I had remembered the wrong password for my Paypal account at the time (not being very bright has a few perks it seems), so the scammers were given a password that doesn't work.

 

I have already forwarded the scam mail to PayPal but I just wanted to ask ; Is there anything else I should do to make sure that the fake site doesn't find out my real password somehow? I realized it was a scam after putting in my email and the (wrong) password and didn't put anything else in. Are there any measures needed here to ensure my account's safe?

 

Thanks
