Yeah. Have not seen any sort of announcements on this list on this in
past month. Is it as 'on topic' as the social engineering comments? ;)
safeharbour () ebay com; abuse () paypal com; fraud () paypal com are recipients
that will normally get an auto 'we are investigating' response.
It is one of MANY scam html page emails coming out of paypal and ebay.
Just a little poorer in execution than most. Normally the final url in a
post form is a compromised webserver in the US.
Note: It would be very nice for some of the hats (I am merely a cap by
comparison) here to investigate the owned servers and provide some sort
of analysis of tools used and amount of fish caught.

I wanted to put this out and get some feedback on it, I have looked
through the source, and it is obvious that the data is not going to
paypal, rather to a .ru host. Has anyone else seen this, and if so
what is the proper action for me to take at this point?
