well this is the first time I have personally recieved an email like this. Comcast's spam filters are horrible however it is my isp so I do check the email every once in a while.
I recieved a well forged document saying that I had 48 hours or my account will be closed, typical BS. I looked at the link andit goes to http://********paypal.net/accept.php its funny that http://********paypal.net does not lead anywhere though, I think its so people do not catch onto them.
I just did a whois
