Sneaky Pay Pal scam

Just had an email claiming to be from Pay Pal

Looks very convincing saying someone tried to log into my account from abroad etc - it gives you a link which looks just like the normal Pay Pal page BUT the link is really to a dummy address!!!!

Bet it will catch loads of people!!!
