How to spot a phishing email:
While scammers change their tactics frequently, look for these classic signs of a phishing or spoofing attempt:
- A request for your bank account, username, password, social security number, or identity. Never share this information.
- A claim that your account is compromised. In such cases, we may send only automated messages from “no-reply” email addresses.
- An unsolicited email with a link to verify your account information.
- Typos in the email address. It’s common to see something like firstname.lastname@example.org (typo).
- Suspicious links that don’t lead to www.paxful.com. Before you enter your login information or click on a link, double-check the URL by copying it into your address bar without pressing Enter.
- Emails that mimic our design. Such emails aim to distract you from typos in the email address or website links by using pictures and colors similar to our platform.
- Emails with .html attachments.
