What can PayPal (or eBay or Amazon or AOL or any of the other popular 
targets of such scams) do about this?

Precious little.  They can complain to the service providers involved 
in the spamming (if they are sent the full Email headers -- unlikely 
from a substantial proportion of those naive enough to have to ask 
what they should do about such things) and they can complain to the 
service providers of the website hosting the bogus "login" form.

For starters, they could supply an e-mail address on their web site
where recipients of such scam mails can submit them, without being
forced to register as a customer.

        -- Niels.
