Default Another PayPal scam

I got this one in my email this morning..........

Unauthorized access to your PayPal account!


We recently noticed more attempts to log in to your PayPal
account from a foreign IP address.

If you accessed your account while traveling, the unusual log in attempts may have been initiated by you. However, if you are the rightfull holder of the account, please visit Paypal as soon as possible to verify your identity:

Click here to verify your account
Here'* the redirect link
http: //ool-44c2dd05.dyn.optonline.net:82/webscrr/index. php


You can also verify your account by logging into your PayPal account at https://www.paypal.com/us/.
Here'* the redirect link for this one
http: //ool-44c2dd05.dyn.optonline.net:82/webscrr/index .php

If you choose to ignore our request, you leave us no choise but to temporaly suspend your account.

We ask that you allow at least 72 hours for the case to be investigated and we strongly recommend to verify your account in that time.

Thank you for using PayPal!
The PayPal Team

Why?

Like Ebay and all the others, they tell you no information will ever be requested through an email or a redirect. They will always wait until you log in.

Don't delete it, ebay has a spam email address where you can forward that kind of stuff.

I get those stupid things all the time - pain in the neck.

I don't even have a paypal account

(ya good rule to go by no bank or other service should ever ask for info via Email and best alway to use your own link to a site, some of the really mean one will take you to the real site but have a pop up login thats fake over the real site.. want to be extra safe on the real site could alway put the wrong password in on the first try to see what happens Lol...)
