A Guide To
Your PayPal Account
As you may know, fraudulent PayPal look-alike emails are being circulated to our customers and requesting personal information.
These fraudulent emails address PayPal customers with the salutation "Dear PayPal User" or "Dear PayPal Member," and are NOT sent by PayPal.
The PayPal website and systems are secure against this threat, but it is important that you protect your PayPal account in the following ways:
1. Never give out the following information in response to an email:
2. Do not download attachments, software updates, or any application to your computer via a link you received in an email. PayPal will not ask you to download anything for your account to work
3. Choose a unique password and change it every 30-60 days.
If you are ever uncertain about the validity of an email or application, go to the PayPal website at https://www.paypal.com/uk/ or https://www.paypal.co.uk/ to check it out.
If you think you have received a fraudulent email, please forward the entire email to email@example.com and then delete it.
