Phishing scams are ever popular with cybercriminals. They try tricking their victims into clicking on a malicious link, which results in the scammer stealing credentials, personal data and even money.
These phishing attacks are usually sent by the scammer in an email. The latest attack making the rounds is targeting a popular online payment system.
You could find a scam email that was recently sent to your inbox claiming to be from PayPal. It’s an official looking email sent by scammers, trying to get you to click on a malicious link.
The email begins by warning the reader that someone is using their PayPal account without their knowledge. It claims that there has been recent activity on their account from a suspicious location. They are then supposed to click on a link to confirm your account.
