PAYPAL SCAM....Many of you are probably aware of the PayPal scam that's going around: you get an email that appears to be from accounts@paypal.com telling you that there have been security problems and would you please click this link to verify all your account information. And don't forget your password!

However, some of you probably aren't, so I thought I'd share the latest email along these lines that I've gotten both as a public service to warn you not to fall for this scam and as an excuse to mock the people who wrote it. Question for the audience: was this written by (a) a 12-year-old, (b) a Nigerian, (c) a moron, or (d) a dyslexic?
