scamWarning: PayPal Email Scam
Halton Trading Standards have become aware of a PayPal scam currently circulating. An email which states it’s from PayPal, but is not from a PayPal email address asks the recipient to login into their PayPal account via a link in the email. This is apparently because the PayPal account holders account has been restricted. This is a scam, do not click on any links within emails such as this. Instead, if you need to check your account go directly to the website to log into your account.  
If you or somebody you know has been caught out by a scam or fraud please contact one of our specialist officers, Linda or Sue on 0151 511 8785 or 0151 511 8775, who are already working with people in Halton who have lost thousands of pounds to scams.
If you need advice on anything else please contact the Citizens Advice Consumer Helpline  or 0808 223 1133

Kind regards
