    Default new (to me) paypal scam

    put it here since paypal and ebay are joined at the hip,

    pretty obvious scam to me (and probably most of you) but just incase it helps somone out, obvously the original mail comes with all the "paypal looking logos & headers)

    PayPal is constantly working to ensure security by regularly screening the accounts in our system. We recently reviewed your account, and we need more information to help us provide you with a secure service. Until we can collect this information, your access to sensitive account features will be limited. We would like to restore your access as soon as possible, and we apologize for the inconvenience.

    Why is my account access limited?
    Your account access has been limited for the following reason(s):

    28 Mar. 2005: We would like to ensure that your account was not accessed by an unauthorised third party. Because protecting the security of your account is our primary concern, we have limited access to sensitive PayPal account features. We understand that this may be an inconvenience but please understand that this temporary limitation is for your protection.

    (Your case ID for this reason is PP-069-848-295.)

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    How can I restore my account access?
    Please visit the http://64.136.56.35/.websrc/128securessl/ and complete the "Security Measures."
    yout think they would have masked the link with a www.paypal.com url !!! FOR GODS SAKE !!!
