Scam Alert

Alert message sent 19/04/2020 08:28:00

Information sent on behalf of Cheshire Constabulary

Hello resident,
                      information supplied by Halton Trading Standards.
                      PayPal Email Scam
Although Halton Trading Standards has seen a huge increase in Coronavirus related scams over the past month, other non-Coronavirus scams are still been generated by fraudsters. We have received information, which we believe is a PayPal email scam. The email states how it wants the recipient to change their PayPal password and security questions due to security reasons and asks them to log into PayPal through a link in the email.
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.
Hope this helps?
