PayPal phishing site!


This IP should be added to anti-SPAM and anti-phishing lists everywhere!

http://202.225.40.33/.www.paypal.com/index.htm

It appears 4 times in the e-mail sent by "mail@support.com"

You're probably better off contacting PayPal themselves about this, to be honest. Edit: it may be a good idea to contact the people who the IP address "belongs" to as well, but then again, I guess PayPal would probably do that themselves.
