Scammers go where the money is, and PayPal is such a successful online payment system that it naturally attracts scammers who try to cheat legitimate PayPal users out of their money. This is the second copy we have received recently of more or less the same PayPal scam message, although it uses a different phony link (deactivated here for safety). The broken English, the hotmail.com return address, and the fake link that has nothing to do with PayPal are all clues to the criminal intent of the sender.
