Default have you had your scam today?

I woke up this morning and almost flipped! I got the email below and thought someone actually charged my account $399. The only thing i have linked to my paypal account is my check card from my bank so i check my account and there'* nothing in pending transactions.
Then I looked closer at the email and realized it was a scam....

I will admit to clicking the "dispute transaction" button b/c i was hyped about these people possibly taking my money. I DID NOT log in tho b/c i noticed the URL

Them things are pretty realistic looking. I see several a day at work. If it weren't for the URL, I'd almost believe 'em...
