Pretty nice paypal.com phishing attempt

I do check my spamfolder on occasion. Google’s Gmail is pretty tough on incoming messages. And so I noticed this message from Paypal.nl, saying something about my account security.

Pretty nice phishing attempt if you ask me

First, notice the fact that the mail came from a paypal.nl domain? That’s just the first indication something is fishy. Paypal doesn’t do mails from a .nl domain (I think).
And second, if you look closer at the link at the bottom, you’ll see the link says paypal.cóm. Pretty tricky. And the fact that my bank would probably inform me first if there was an issue with my creditcard.

Anyway, pretty nice attempt.
