What if I get a suspicious email from customer service?

If you get an email that looks like it's from our customer service, be careful. It could be a phishing email, trying to trick you into giving up your login information.
Here's what to look for to spot a phishing email:

  • The email address doesn't match the real customer service address
  • The email has typos or grammatical errors
  • It asks you for personal information, such as your login ID or password
  • The email threatens to close your account if you don't take action immediately
  • The email includes attachments or links that you weren't expecting

If you get an email that looks suspicious, don't reply to it, and don't click on any links or attachments. Instead, forward the email to spoof@paypal.
