Phishing PayPal email in my Gmail account

I got a phishing spam PayPal email that mimics the address services.paypal.com in my Gmail account, with title “Notification of Limited Account Access,” and a url that asks me to verify my paypal account but pointing to http://www.soios.com/matiz/varios/www.paypal.com/ssl/, which is not paypal’s website. It’s actually from servidor01.mimela.com, not paypal’s server. Here’s part of the heading of the email from the original message, which can be seen in GMail by clicking the arrow next to the reply button and then click “Show original.”

Yesterday I got paid by Bidvertiser

Yesterday finally I got the first payment to my Paypal account by Bidvertiser, it was about 26 dollars, earned from the ads in my other websites. I’m very happy about that, since it’s the first time I get so much money in my Paypal account! It also proved that Bidvertiser actually pays, at least for a small amount, although I don’t recommend it to anyone who has a very good website, because sometimes it won’t count some clicks. In spite of this it accepts almost all kinds of websites, including the free web sites and subdomains, you don’t need to wait for your website to be approved, but be careful that if your website is not approved after they review it some times later your website along with the earning from it will be DELETED!

Anyways here’s the picture of the payment received from it:
