Oh but he IS making the world a better place or at least one very small
corner of it: his wallet. It's going to have a little more green in it.With a sig like that, it makes me wonder if *YOU* are the "phisherman",
bragging about your latest exploit and maybe trying to take in a few more
suckers....

Yeah, don't be fooled, it's a mass mailout to everyone. It's not a legit
email so the originator doesn't know who's got PayPal and who hasn't.

I got a message like this for both PayPal and Ebay. Since I don't have an
account on either of these places, I just ignored it. It is fine with me if
the disable an account that I don't have.
