Scam Of The Week: Phishers Target PayPal Users With Fake ‘Failed Transaction’ Emails

Make sure to not click on links in unsolicited emails, and manually navigate to any shopping sites. Copy and paste or type the following link into your browser to watch our Safe Holiday Shopping Video: https://youtu.be/B2Q0OLZP404.
