ok, let me just put this in for the record, so noone gets confused and actually does this..If you receive an email from paypal, it will have your REAL NAME at the header, not Dear paypal member, this thread is of course in good humor... I would hope that if anyone gets these emails they foward them to spoof@paypal.com that way they can attmept to track down and prosecute the individuals phishing for info.....
  
   with that said.....
               Maybe I should sign a power of attorney and give it to them too... just in case...

Yeah you definately got to watch yourself with that kinda stuff. A friend of mine tried to by an audio receiver off ebay, needless to say, the guy took his money and skipped town leaving my buddy's walet $150 lighter with no receiver to show for it. Turns out this guys a pretty big time criminal and drug dealer or somthing and this isn't the first time hes done this.
