A classical phishing email… Nothing special (same bad English, as always).
Dear Valued Customer,
Unauthorized access has been detected in your account.
Unfortunately, due to this event, our security system has limited the access to your account.
Account Limitations prevent you from completing certain actions with your account, such as withdrawing, sending, or receiving money.
These limitations are implemented when we see unusual or suspicious activity to help protect both PayPal buyers and sellers.
Please verify your account by completing the form which is attached in this email. By doing this, restrictions in your account will be lifted.
We apologize for any inconve nience.

What is interesting is the usage of a technique which I haven’t seen used since a couple of years: they attached an HTML document containing the form below.
It is a simple HTML form which submits to hxxp://www.secured-line.su/x01.php using a hidden ID.
Are they counting which form performs better ? Hmm…
Fortunately, Google detects these emails as spam/phishing and blocks them.
