And another Paypal Phish...

This is a mail I received in my mailbox one hour ago:

For your protection, we have limited access to your account until additional security
measures can be completed. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

To review your account and some or all of the information that Pay Pal
used to make its decision to limit your account access, please visit the Resolution Center.

We encourage you to log in and restore full access as soon as possible. Should access to your
account remain limited for an extended period of time, it may result in further limitations on
the use of your account or may result in eventual account closure.

The usual Logging in screen, which then opened the following page:

They don't only want your Paypal Password, but as you see, A LOT of other information as well - Card number, Expiration date, Card verification number, Pin number and Bank name.

Anyway, if you became a victim of this Phish, contact Paypal and your Bank immediately and change your Paypal Password asap!
