First-rate phishing email claims "Your Paypal transaction was declined

Quote:
Extremely well-made fake notifications claiming the recipients' PayPal transaction was declined are doing rounds and trying to trick users sharing personal and financial information.

The email - well formatted and sporting the PayPal logo - explains that "unusual activity" from a "suspicious location" has been spotted in the recipients' account, making them believe that "someone is using your PayPal account without your knowledge."
