Just FYI, the next round of Paypal imposter scams seems to be out. This one masquerades as an email from Paypal warning that your account has been logged into several times from different IP addresses, and recommends logging in to check. Of course it provides a handy link, which looks like it points to paypal.com, but really points to their facade site and allows them to gather your Paypal login data for some nefarious purpose.
There's something really perverse about a scam masquerading as a scam warning.
As always, follow the email safety rules:
* Never reveal personal information to an unknown party and/or one who has no need to know it
* Never click on a link in an email to reach a login page
* If you know the guilty party, put a few drops of phenylthalene in their drink and make them unload all the crap they try to unload on everyone else
