Although I know better than to follow those links, that's one of the nice things about using Eudora as a mail program. As soon as you move your mouse over the link, it instantly pops up with a warning that the actual address is different from what is shown!

You're correct though that just looking at the grammar and/or spelling is usually enough to give it away...not to mention the greeting "Dear customer". :-)

Exactly. PayPal and EBay will address you by name in a legitamate e-mail. "Dear Customer" is the first sign that it's a scam. If you're using Outlook, you can hover over the link and it'll show you the true path at the bottom of the page. ;-)
