    I got this (poorly done phishing scam) e-mail today:
    ~~~~~
    Dear valued PayPal® member:

    It has come to our attention that your PayPal Billing Information records are out of date. That requires you to update the Billing Information.
    Failure to update your records will result in account termination. Once you have updated your account records,your PayPal session will not be interrupted
    and will continue as normal. Failure to update will result in cancellation of service, Terms of Service (TOS) violations or future billing problems.
    To update your Paypal® records click on the following link:

    Sincerely,
    PayPal® Account Review Department

    I started thinking...wouldn't it be fun if people flooded these jerks with so much useless information that it makes their dishonest scheme more difficult to execute? I have filled out the form a few times. Making sure the credit card number is valid is a bit of a pain, but not too difficult.

    Please give it a try.
