Some HCPSS employees are receiving fake invoice emails from what appears to be PayPal (see image below). If you do not recognize the invoice, please forward the original message to phishing@paypal.com and do not click any links, download any attachments or call any listed phone numbers. The email is likely fraudulent and sent by a PayPay imposter. More information regarding PayPal imposters can be found online.
