PayPal Customer Review Team Warning of Unusual Charges-Fiction! & Phishing!

You might have gotten an email from PayPal that says they have detected unusual charges on the credit card that is linked to your PayPal account.
The email is from the PayPal Customer Review Team and warns that your account has been limited.
It comes with a compressed file attached that they say is a form to confirm your account information.

Do not reply to this email or open the attachment.
It looks authentic but it is scam to trick the readers into replying and divulging all sorts of personal information.
This scam is called “phishing.”

For details and tips on how to spot such scams go to:
