Introduction to the Klook Travel Paypal Payment scam
Hello good people and welcome to a review of some emails that have been circulating and telling people that they have just made some payments to Klook using PayPal when they have not made any payments at all. Well I’m sure some of the people do not even have PayPal accounts and are really surprised and some of the people don’t have anything as close to 220$ in their accounts either so how could this be possible. Well, could this possibly be some game and what kind of a game and what are these people really planning and intending to do or is this just a correct email sent to the wrong email address. Not at all join us as we discuss the Klook Travel Paypal Payment scam and how exactly it works and how you should go about it to avoid getting scammed by these guys.
The Klook Travel Paypal Payment scam
So here is what happened, you just received and email and they told you that you made a Payment to Klook using PayPal and that if there has been some error log into your account to correct this error and they gave you a link to use to correct this right? You are probably one of a thousand people that have also received the very same scam email. Yes they are a scam that is only trying to make sure you leave them you PayPal details so they can steal cash from you.
These have been around for a long time, not the Klook one of course but a lot of such emails that claim you made a purchase you did not make. Now to make you see that they really are a scam you just have to sit down and ask yourself if you have made such a Payment and why this email is being sent to hundreds of people all at the same time? Looks phishy doesn’t it? Yes the link leads you to a phishing site which is an imitation of PayPal. Once you try to login at that moment the site is already capturing the details you are putting in and so they can use them on the legit site to steal cash from you.
What to do?
I know people really get frightened over the thought of having some cyber criminal try to access their account, but always remember that as long as you haven’t given them your credentials to log into PayPal then there is no reason to worry. If you have provided them with the details in trying to login on their site then you definitely want to make sure that you change your password and make sure no funds have been deducted or sent to some unknown account. If that has been done you can contact PayPal and they can try to retrieve the money for you as this is possible and has been done to make people who have come across such.
These Klook Travel Paypal Payment scams are not something completely new. Maybe they are just new in terms of the Klook part but the trick is still the same old one used by many criminals. They are a scam that is simply trying to get you to give them your paypal credentials so they can use them to take money from your account. Don’t let yourself get scammed and if you have also come across this please leave a copy of your email to help others who may be asking the question of what this is all about. Also leave a comment if you have had any experience with this.
