I got two of these messages earlier today. I ran the IP addresses, of
course they could be spoofed, but they are located in Pennsylvania. I
doubt you will hear anything from the IP owner whether they are involved
or not. The abuse address doesn't really mean much.

Subject: paypal phishing attempt

Hi List

I have just signed up so sorry if this has already been done to death.

I received an email from a spoofed paypal notifications (at) paypal (dot) com [email concealed]
address through a UUNET Server which claimed that the
email address undergroundseller (at) yahoo (dot) com [email concealed] had been added to my paypal
account and to confirm this.

This is a security check paypal would actually do, although they
wouldn't link through


Have notified the abuse address of the IP owner, but who are the
relevant authorites to contact in case he doesn't care or is party to
the scam?

Anyone collecting / studying such emails I will fwd.

Many Thanks
