PayPal- nowayjose

I just got a phishing e-mail claiming to be from PayPal saying they were going to suspend my account unless I clicked on the link, yada, yada.

Thought I'd check it out.
I entered my address as noway@jose.com and my password as yourkidding.

Here's the page I went to next:
Security Measures

We are currently performing maintanance of your account, and you will be taken through a series of identity verification pages.

Please fill in the correct information to verify your identity.

Email Address : noway@jose.com

Think I ought to give them a bogus credit card number in the rest of the collection of info?

and that's the first one you've had? I would waste about two seconds on it.

Forward it to spoof@paypal.com with the complete header, not that it does any good but who knows.

Not the first, just one of the better ones- thought I'd play with them a little. Sent it to spoof before I even posted here.
