Hello. My partner just received an Email from PayPal saying that a transaction has gone out at £50. it also says that it will take a while to show up in the app. There is a log in address link, but I'm sure it's a scam as none of the small links within work. anybody else had this?

yea its a scam

Nice one... post a link to a site you think is fraudulent!!! That's clever! Just log into your PayPal account if you need to check... not using that link!

Does it have your name or email address at the top of the email?
I've had an email off them with my username on but after a quick Google search read that PayPal always use your name in every email

Never follow a link address to log in, always log in via your usual method for this and any other accounts.

​Sorry

I get them all the time. Paypal have never actually emailed me with anything of the sort so I don't even open the email, check your account (via the proper website not the link in the email) if you're really worried
