Fake PayPal UK phishing email doing the rounds

Thanks to the ever vigilant Malwarebytes for picking up on this story. There’s a phoney PayPal email, phishing email, doing the rounds. The questionnaire offers a “£25 reward” if you complete the survey. I think it’s fair to say that it’s very unlikely PayPal would offer a kickback like that just for a survey. Alarm bells.

Crucially, the email asks for the recipients’ credit/debit card details. Alarm bells! And thankfully it is being flagged as spam in Gmail but depending on what email set up you have, it might have slipped through to your inbox.

Read the full text and details off the email on Malwarebytes.
