This phishing email is developed in order to steal your paypal information. However, there are many clues which will tip you off that this is fake.
The transaction email states I made this purchase February 18. I know that I didn’t make this purchase, so one might panic and think their paypal ID was stolen. But why would paypal be notifying me more than 6 months later?
Don’t click links in emails. Check for subtle or obvious details. Soon you will develop an eye for red flags which will keep you, and your accounts safer.
