Email PayPal Scam

A PayPal scam this time. I received an email purporting to be from PayPal. It was sent to the correct address and looked exactly like emails I get from PayPal. It said the transfer of $13,438.62 was being held for security reasons and to click the “Accept” or “Decline” buttons.

Oddly the transfer was listed as being to I think I know what email addresses are valid at my own company. Also one sentence had incorrect English.

The buttons both went to the same non-PayPal address where I am sure they would either infect my computer with some sort of malware or would have tried to get my login information for PayPal.
