Police Warn About PayPal Scam

If you use PayPal a lot, you need to hear this.
The Fraud section of the Saint John police service warning that users may get an email entitled  "Dear PayPal user" with official looking logos, graphics and format which provides a link to verify account info and identity.
City police describe this type of fraud as "phishing".

The police point out an email from PayPal will address you by your first and last name or by your business name and would never ask for sensitive information like your password, bank account or credit card.
