This is the worst case of spoofing I have ever seen, but unfortunately it probably worked. How to identify that this is a spoof email:
1. PayPal never sends out information asking for your login, password or credit card information.
2. The senders email address
3. Look at the url the website directs you to (http://www.tcpsearch.com/_cv/www.paypal.com/sign-on/") not a paypal url.
If you think you received an email that is a spoof, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
