RE: Paypal Phishing Again

I would guess that almost everyone on this list, can spot a phishing
e-mail. I reported one to Paypal yesterday, and another the day before
that. I would say that I can around 8-10 a week. Should I post them all
on FD? It doesn't help. The phishing site will be down in a matter of
days (perhaps hours)..and it will be put up on another zombie that is in
the botnet.

Report these to paypal and to the anti-phishing group. FD is a place to
talk about phishing, but not to report each e-mail...just my 2 cents.

Hello all,

Wasn't sure if anybody spotted this one, but here's another 
phishing attempt by someone looking for Paypal account information:
