Working harder to scam you better

I regularly get scam e-mails purporting to be from PayPal (or eBay, or whoever), telling me that my account is in danger of being terminated if I don't go to some mocked-up website and enter my credit card info. But this one gets extra points for chutzpah:

Dear valued PayPal member:

It has come to our attention that your PayPal account information needs to be
updated as part of our continuing commitment to protect your account and to
reduce the instance of fraud on our website.

The saddest spam I have seen recently is detailed here. Nothing like watching someone exploit a tragedy to make one's stomach turn (it shouldn't be surprising, I guess, but I was still appalled).
