You have changed your PayPal email address
I received an email this morning titled, You have changed your Paypal email address. It’s obviously a piece of phishing spam, but one that may catch a few people out. The Paypal email details:
Subject: You have changed your PayPal email address
From: Paypal [email@example.com]
Attachment: Paypal- Account Update Form.pdf.htm (32 KB)
Dear Paypal member,
You have added firstname.lastname@example.org as a new email address for your Paypal account.
If you did not authorize this change, check with family members and others who may have
access to your account first. If you still feel that an unauthorized person has changed
your email, submit the form attached to your email in order to keep your original email
and restore your Paypal account.
If you are using Internet Explorer please allow ActiveX for scripts to perform all data transfers
Thank you for using Paypal !
