Click to Dispute this transaction
In the phishing email sample as above, you can find out that this cybercriminal has asked you to click to dispute the transaction at the end of the email. When you click there, you will be directed to the webpage which looks exactly similar to PayPal but with the domain "verify-dispute2644.serveirc.com".
The domain name of PayPal will be always "www.paypal.com". So, if you ever find the webpage which looks exactly similar to PayPal but not with the domain "www.paypal.com", then you must know that is a fake PayPal website.
Never ever provide your PayPal credentials and credit card information on such a fake PayPal website, otherwise, cybercriminals will misuse your those details and will steal your money from your PayPal as well as from your credit card.
To be on safe side, never ever click any link provided on any email sent by PayPal. Instead, directly go to the official website of PayPal which is "www.paypal.com" and log in there to check your account status.
If you ever have mistakenly provided your PayPal credentials to fake PayPal website, we suggest you immediately change your password and then contact the support team of PayPal and follow their direction to secure your PayPal account. You should also contact your bank or credit card company to secure your credit card which is linked with your PayPal account.
