Dear PayPal customer,

During our regularly scheduled account maintenance and
verification procedure we have detected a slight error in your
billing information.

This might be due to the following reasons:

1. A recent change in your personal information (ie. change of address, email address)
2. An inability to accurately verify your selected option of payment due to an internal error 
within our systems.

Please verify your information. To do this we have attached a
form to this email. Please download the form and follow the
instructions on your screen.
NOTE: The form needs to be opened in a modern browser which has
javascript enabled (ex: Internet Explorer 7, Firefox 3, Safari 3,
Opera 9)

We are requesting this information to verify and protect your
identity. This is in order to prevent the illegal activity of
PayPal accounts.

Please do not reply to this email.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may have
caused. Sincerely, PayPal Security Team.

Since you’re here …
we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell. And unlike many informational websites, we haven’t put up a paywall or membership barrier – we want to keep our site as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
