    I just just received an e-mail which was obviously a phishing attempt. I was interested in which site it would direct me to, so I have tested out the link in Firefox and IE10. I was really surprised by the result so thought I would share it. Check out the attached pictures.

    The phishing e-mail I got is:
    PayPal Problems United Kingdom
