The following message that warns users of an email from PayPal is describing a real type of threat known as a phishing scam.

Phishing scams involve scammers contacting victims whilst pretending to represent a legitimate entity, in this case PayPal. They do this in order to lure the victim into handing over sensitive information such as login information such as usernames and passwords.

Most often phishing scams are initiated through email or social media and lead to spoof websites where victims are asked to enter their personal information.
