There has been a sudden upsurge in scam emails purporting to come from PayPal. These look like a receipt for a bogus payment to various named people. If you get one of these then DON’T CLICK ON THE CANCEL LINK – that’s where the phishing bit is!!!

The emails have the giveaway salutation “dear Paypal member” rather than your real name, but apart from that they look believable. Contact PayPal direct if you get one of these.
