This one came in just now and appears to be 
valid, Except I don't have a paypal account. And 
"successfully" is misspelled in the subject line. 
Note also the domain: pay-pal.us ??? Is there a new 2LD we don't know about?

I've included the full header info for 
examination. Maybe I don't have my spam-assassin set at a high enough level?

Also, there was an attachment that was a 
filename.pdf.html format. Also weird. I didn't open it.
