Halton Trading Standards have received information about a PayPal e-mail scam. The e-mail states how it wants the recipient to change their PayPal password and security questions due to security reasons and asks them to log into PayPal through a link in the e-mail.
This is a scam – do not click on any links within e-mails such as this. Instead, if you need to check your account go directly to the website to log into your account.
