Recently, a lot of people have received emails from Freemans, a famous online fashion retail company, that say the individual has placed an order (one which they didn’t know about). These emails are a SCAM!
The scammers instruct victims to click on the embedded button if they want to cancel the order, and it leads to a fake PayPal log-in page (it’s a phishing page):
Scammers will record the sensitive data you enter here, which will enable them to take control of your PayPal account. Be careful!
