PayPal doesn’t seem to play around……..

PayPal is about the most Secure form of Operations on the Internet. We trust them and by right, they should indeed be reliable.
PayPal never comes out of the blue with a request for you to do anything. It goes without saying that you should NEVER, EVER, respond to an email touting to be PayPal and asking for updated information. In short, never reply to anything that says it’s from PayPal from an email period. Some say that it is unsafe to even open an email that says it’s from PayPal.
There are exceptions to the rule because PayPal will make it clear what an email from them is all about, for instance, when you have withdrew funds to be funneled to your Bank Account. When you receive this message it will contain the confirmation of your transfer and will not request anything from you, for it is simply completing the process.
Beware of any email that will try to tell you that your PayPal account is in danger. If there is any concern, don’t do anything through such an email. Go directly to PayPal, log in and see for yourself. If you message them, they will respond in kind.
It’s really simple what these Scammers try to do and that is to separate you from your password or log in through their emails to secure all the information on your Account. This is why guarding your email address in general is important.
Never share your PayPal Account! Be safe, beware. Peace.
