The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has issued a new warning to internet users regarding a series of phishing email scams that are currently circulating. These scams are designed to deceive recipients by impersonating popular payment gateway PayPal and crypto wallet platform MetaMask, urging users to be cautious and vigilant.
The fraudulent email purporting to be from PayPal informs customers that their payment to Binance has been canceled by BNC Billings. On the other hand, the fake MetaMask email notifies users that their cryptocurrency wallet has been blocked. It is crucial to note that both emails are scams, aiming to trick individuals into revealing sensitive information.
