SCAM WARNING: Paypal Security Check ! Please login !

It's probably time to once again remind our loved ones and customers to be 
careful. There are lots of people out there looking to part you from your 
money. And there's not a lot that John Ashcroft can do to these theives in 
Romania and http://www.thisismypage.com (where the form target was hosted) to 
get your money back.

And for all those that love HTML email ....

> Return-Path: <Services@paypal.com>
> From: Services@paypal.com
> X-ClientAddr:
> Received: from cable-z1-host-90.geniusnet.ro ([]
>   helo=localhost.com)
> Date: Mon, 21 Oct 2002 00:22:09 +0200
> Subject: Paypal Security Check ! Please login !
> X-Mailer: MailXSender 1.02

Containing an HTML email with the following identifiers:
  Script info: Script: WEBSCR, Cmd: _registration-run, Template: p/gen/signup, 
Version: 14.5-168, Templates: 14.5-186, Date: Mon Oct  7 12:49:35 2002 

However, it curiously had the following target for the login form...

<FORM method=POST action="http://www.thisismypage.com/formmail.asp?user=onur" 

And *NOT* PayPal's. Everything else about the page was ripped directly from 
PayPal's website - images and all.

And then, the clue phone rang when I read this...

> Your account has been randomly selected for this maintenance, and you will
