Scam alert: watch for fake PayPal invoices

Fraudsters are sending fake invoices via PayPal… and some are paying up without thinking twice.

These scams most commonly appear as email messages informing you that you have received an invoice via PayPal. If you click the link and pay using your PayPal account, your money will be gone instantly, transferred to the scammer who sent the invoice.

You can contact the entity the invoice is purportedly from (look for their contact info online; don’t contact the person who sent the invoice directly) to confirm its legitimacy.
