If you look at the email properties it is some guy in Estonia... When you go to the website is www.paypal.jqyyfl something or other .com . The guy must have a bit of HTML knowledge or maybe a bootleg Hotmetal pro cd.. Funny thing is that after checking it all out and notifying Paypal security about it, I went to type Paypal into the address bar but it autocompleted to the other link. I typed in my password and hit enter then immediately realized what I did so I went to the real paypal next and changed my login. Then I cleared the history from IE and deleted all cookies and files.
