not paypal

damn, i almost fell for a phishing scam untill i noticed that the url wasn't "paypal.com" but "paypal.com.authorized-user.cn". Is CN canada? The link in the email said paypal.com, but i suppose you can make a link read as anything.
Using different browsers with different "secure site" schemes adds to the confusion.

Canada is .ca

I don't know where .cn is, but I wouldn't be surprised if it were somewhere in the 3rd world.
