Found the following e-mail message in my in-box earlier today. Found it somewhat of a surprise as the filters typically catch such messages. Also found it a surprise as the wording was clearly not from someone at PayPal, or at least, PayPal here in the US. I thought the spammers were suppose to be getting more sophisticated.

Mail headers show it as coming from a teleco in Jakarta, Indonesia, and then bounced through a throw-away domain. (I’ve changed e-mail address and link for this post.)
Sorry, spammer. We find that the activity you are breaking some credibility with us.
