The golden years are coming back

I am not sure if the phisher in question can’t afford a web developer, are tired of having their sites shut down mid-scam, or are just plain stupid, but they are resorting to fax-back requests in trying to gain access to some Paypal accounts.

The scam in question uses an spam email to redirect victims to a site where they grab an MS Word form, fill out their account information, and are then told to fax it to a toll free number. Having a purportedly US-based toll number for sending account data might fool a few folks into thinking this is legit, but for the phishers it makes a nice audit trail for getting caught. At least we hope.
