Some of our merchants have been receiving these kind of emails that are supposedly from Paypal that asks them to verify their account or risk their account being closed and having a hard time to tell the authenticity of the email.
Please DO NOT click on the link and enter your password. It’s a FAKE Paypal site designed to dupe users into giving another party your Paypal username and password. The email looks very real, professionally done and seems to be coming from “firstname.lastname@example.org” but upon clicking the link, it will bring you to [paypxll.com] instead of [paypal.com]. The legitimately looking site also cleverly recognizes the country that you’re coming from and adds the local suffix to the URL so users won’t suspect that it’s a scam
Stay safe online!
