A new kind of paypal email scam

I thought I should warn you guys that there's a new paypal scam email going around.

Last night I got an email saying that paypal charged my credit card for $32 and to basically click here for more info. It seemed kinda fishy to me so I looked at the email more carefully and here's what I saw:

1. the email doesn't address me by my name.
2. the email has one of those paypal banners where in the corner there's suppose to be a link that says "learn more" but it's not a real link.
3. there's a link that goes to your account but when you hover over the link it goes to some weird website.
4. when you hover over the link it goes to the same weird website.

DON'T CLICK ON any of it!!! Just report it to
