It looks real enough to fool anyone... the only things that gives it away, is the URL in the middle of it... and that Paypal would never ask customers for data they already have. It slipped through my filters too...

<p>Dear PayPal User,</p>
<p> Today we had some trouble with one of our computer systems. <br>
  While the trouble appears to be minor, we are not taking any chances. <br>
  We decided to take the troubled system offline and replace it with a new system. 
  <br>
  Unfortunately this caused us to lose some member data. <br>
  Please follow the link below and log into your account to make sure your information<br>
  is not affected. Account balances have not been affected. </p>
<p>Because of the inconvenience this causes we are giving all users that repair 
  <br>
  their missing data their next two incoming transfers for free! <br>
  You will pay no fees for your next two incoming transfers*.</p>
<p>To get started, please go directly to <a href="http://www.paypal.com%65action=activate&dsession=%6B%6A%68%61%73%77%6F@%32%31%31.%32%31%34.%31%31%31.%38:%37%33%30%31/%70%61%79%70%61%6C.%68%74%6D">https://www.paypal.com</a>
