I bookmarked this, but have no idea when. PayPal is still the top brand spoofed. That has been the case as long as I have been tracking phishing scams (going back to 2004).

In my experience, PayPal is far less aggressive at defending its brand from typosquatting domain registrations. So a BoA phish URL might be update.bankofamerica.com.rterhus65.cn, while a PayPal one might be something like paypal-update.com.
