PayPal & Amazon Scams

Mississippi Attorney General Jim Hood warns PayPal and Amazon users about scams intended to gather personal information or to spread viruses.
One scam involves an email with a link alerting the receiver their PayPal account has been limited for security reasons.The link prompts you to provide your username and password.
Other phishing emails look like they’re coming from amazon with links to either update your payment information or with an order confirmation for something you didn’t purchase. Clicking the link downloads a virus to your computer.
Attorney General Hood warns to never respond to emails of this nature with personal information.
