PayPal and Phishing

I received an email in last week, was telling me that I must change my Paypal login information or my account will be suspended. I was so surprised that I never got the email like this from Paypal before. So I logged to my paypal from my Firefox bookmarks and checked whether my account has been suspended or not. It seems normal and I can use my account in Paypal.

I ignored the instructions in that email and forward the email to the Paypal support team. They replied me that It is a phising email. Yep, the link they included in the email points to the following site not the paypal page.

<a href=”http://201.160.34.201.cable.dyn.cableonline.com.mx/logn.php”>http://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_login-run</a>

I visited that link lately and Firefox alerted me that It is phising site. Scary!!!
