Exclamation Warning Spoof email Paypal doing the rounds

Be warned - there is a phishing attempt to get bank details under Paypal's name. They have just confirmed to me that it is a fake. Never believe these type of emails. Only supply details after a secure login to a trusted site
It started

PUBLICIDAD: Añada su cuenta bancaria ahora y consiga 10 Euros en saldo PayPal. ¡Sólo hasta el 15 de mayo!

Not only that... I received this today

You have received an iTunes Gift Certificate in the amount of $50.00
You can find your certificate code in attachment below.
Then you need to open iTunes. Once you verify your account, $50.00 will be credited to your account, so you can start buying music, games, video right away.
iTunes Store.
There is a .zip attachment - always a bad sign on a spam email
My mac allows me to inspect zip files without opening them
Inside is an .exe file - so I'm safe enough running MacOSX - but if the recipient runs the exe file the likelihood is that if you have an iTunes account on your PC all yor details will be harvested and youll be well out of pocket!!

Beware!! aint no such thing as a free lunch!!
