Scam “UPDATE YOUR PAYPAL ACCOUNT” – ALERT

Avoid opening and delete these emails!  They contain Malware Apps and / or links designed to steel your PayPal account info.

This type of Malware takes advantage of the curious side of people.  Most of us have a PayPal account and assume its a legit notification.  So we open the email and click on the link without really looking at the actual email.  Then your infected or the link takes you to a site that looks like PayPal and you login only to realize – ITS NOT PAYPAL.  Now they have your account login and password.
