You have a security message alert !

Below is an email I received "Paypal" it's an obvious scam but I know there are people out there who will still click on the link thinking their account is in trouble. Funny thing about this, the email it was sent to isn't associated with a Paypal account. Makes me wonder where these scammers get their information from or if they just have a list of emails to try their scams on. The headers are on for those who like to investigate. Link has been disabled, if you do a properties check on the link you can see it's not paypal. It's the security-message.sytes.net part of the URL that makes it suspecious.
