Don’t click ‘Paypal locked’ link
I just received a text message from 07895 647001 telling me that my Paypal account (linked to my quoted mobile number) had been “locked”. To restore access I was advised to click this link: http://bit.ly/2qyvt0k. It was obviously a scam to trap the unwary (I checked by logging into my Paypal account, which was of course functioning normally). It didn’t have the usual spelling or grammatical errors, so some people will be fooled. I never click random bit.ly addresses because you never know where they will route you to.
