Re: am I getting phished??

The link they speak of is

http://64.177.181.23/

A DNS lookup resolves to:

http://network-tools.com/default.asp...=64.177.181.23

Be fast or be last.

And even if you do think you bought something, don't click the link in the e-mail. Go to PayPal through your own shortcut/type it into the URL line, then log in.

Yep. I got a similar email that looked like I had won something on ebay, but when I logged in as described above, there was nothing on my account. So I notified ebay of the message.
