Paypal phishing scam emails

A new PayPal phishing campaign has been noticed.

These are nearly flawless scam emails. In these emails PayPal’s logo is used at the top of the message, it is styled professionally and the request is believable.

But as much as it attempts to replicate a genuine email from PayPal, there’s one huge red flag: the sender’s address is “” in the first picture and “” in the second one’.

A genuine email from PayPal would have the organisation’s name in the domain name, indicating that it had come from someone at (@) PayPal. That PayPal isn’t in the domain name is proof that this is a scam.

Although, simply including PayPal anywhere in the message is often enough to trick people.
