Quite authentic looking email

I've been getting a large number of fake emails requesting my PayPal info. I recieved on today that looked REALLY real, FRIGHTENINGLY real. I wish I could show it to you.

Remember, if you ever recieve an email from ANYONE saying there is a problem with your account, or whatever, NEVER, NEVER, NEVER use the link enclosed in the email. Open a new browser window and go to your account that way. PayPal has a link to their "Resolution Center" once you log in. If there is a problem with your account you will find information about it there.

I received one, but it was real. :toothy:
I got one the other day stating my CC is about to expire and I need to change the exp date. No idea if it's real or not- so in the trash folder it went.
This one looked so real it was scary. It even had PayPal's "How to protect your account" box on it. The biggest clue's were that "Warning" was miss-spelled, and the "case number" was PP-000-000-000-000. Be VERY careful you guys.
