Phishers Impersonating Paypal

Just poking a quick heads-up here, since this particular scam isn't being caught by some anti-phishing filters. It's entitled "PayPal Resolution Center - Remove Account Limitations", and it points here.

You get the typical bullshit that phishers use to scare you into clicking:

PayPal Resolution Center

Ah yes, and what phish scam wouldn't be complete without a link for tips on protecting yourself from fraud. Funny stuff.

It looks like a pretty simple script. It doesn't use any credit card checksum verifiers or anything, so feel free to flood these assholes with either abuse or plausible-looking information that they will spend a while trying before they discard.
