Restoring Access To PayPal Account

This is a scam that has been happening recently. If you have received an email telling you that you need to restore your PayPal account because it has been hacked, it is a scam. You would be asked to download a file in order to do that. Once you have downloaded the file, you will be taken to a fake PayPal website. You would be motivated to enter your PayPal login ID and password which would then be phished by these scammers.

The important thing to remember is not to click on any links that come in email, whether they are legitimate emails or not. Or worse, download attachments from such emails!
