Cybercriminals are scamming credit card and personal details through a brazen new phishing email.

Advanced System Care – Help Keep Scammers Away by Cleaning and Secureing Your PC Effectively and Keeping it that Way

Unsuspecting Aussies have been warned about a new phishing scam that appears to be a legitimate email from payment platform PayPal.

Those targeted receive a fake payment receipt via email, purported to be sent by PayPal, for a subscription to Norton 360 Deluxe costing $360.98.

The receipt includes a phone number to call should the recipient believe the charges are incorrect.

A note on the receipt reads: “If you don’t authorised this charges you have 24hrs, to cancel and get an Instant refund of your annual subscription by contacting our customer support team +61 2 8091 5185”.

But rather than connecting the caller to PayPal, the phone number listed on the invoice connects them to a cybercriminal who seeks personal details from the victim, including credit card information, in order to ‘reverse’ the non-existent transaction.

Instead, they use the personal details and credit card information garnered for fraudulent purposes.

Ironically, Norton 360 Deluxe is a subscription for a cyber safety package which includes malware protection, a virtual private network, parental controls, webcam blocking, password management and computer file backup.
