We constantly post Paypal scam or phishing emails supposedly sent by trusted online brands (such as Paypal) in the hopes of warning people not to fall victims into these schemes. Here’s another one we received today.
This one is very similar to authentic Paypal messages on Account Review. Paypal usually sends such emails to Paypal users whose accounts are being reviewed due to certain transactions.
As opposed to the real Paypal message, though, the one below asks the recipient to download an attached file (check.html) and follow the steps there. The email message goes:

I received an email today inviting me to answer a Paypal survey. A Sony laptop is at stake once I finished the survey. The invite was sent by email@example.com and it is supposedly administered on behalf of Paypal.

Very few local debit and credit cards can be used with Paypal. For those without credit cards, the UnionBank EON debit card is a usual option. For those with a BPI Mastercard, however, there now is an alternative “credit card” that can be used with Paypal: the BPI e-Credit card.
I visited BPI earlier and a staff introduced me to it. The e-Credit card is similar to a supplementary card, which means it is attached to the regular BPI Mastercard.
BPI markets the e-Credit card as the “card for online transactions.” Its account number is different from the regular credit card number which means online, your regular credit card number won’t appear.
