those guys are getting better, this one nearly had me... and that link addy was almost close enough... almost.. still I wont use any links in any emails EVER.. when I get these (even legit ones) I always go to the site and log into my account, and check for my self.
^*^

FYI (for anyone that gets these paypal ones)- forward them to spoof@paypal.com
