Still Plenty of Phishing Rookies Out There

You'd think that by now there would be enough polished phishing kits in the wild to let even a doofus create a credible mailing and phony web site.

But nooooo...!

Look at this drivel, which I copied verbatim from the email message:

Subject: Account limited !

Dear user of PayPal services,

This email is to inform you that we had block your PayPal account because this ip accessed your account 3 times and tryed to change your billing information. We to continue using our service you have to renew your online account. If not, your online apologise for the inconvenience but the safety of your account is our main priority.

Thank you for using PayPal!
The PayPal Team

Then the phony web presence (on a hijacked web site) is a copy of the French PayPal home page. What a moron!
