I just received a very well crafted hoax e-mail from "paypal" saying that my account has been limited and to log in to change my password. I clicked the link and got to a login screen that also said Paypal. Before going any further, I compared that e-mail with other PayPal e-mails I'd received and sure enough the "your account has been limited" email was from "Paypal" not "PayPal". I then searched to find the well hidden origin email address and found an email ending in "destroyyourdiabetes.net". So just a warning to any and all that use PayPal, there is someone out there trying to get your account info by posing as PayPal and doing a pretty convincing job of it too. I changed my password (through the official site) just to be safe. Hope this will help at least one person from getting sucked into the scam!
