Crass stupid phishing scams

For some stupid reason, I got the following two texts within 12 hours of each other, the first yesterday evening, the second this morning.

Scam PayPal text message

Nope, not PayPal

Scam Amazon text message

Nope, not Amazon

For a kickoff, both have grammar/spelling errors, and then they both use with a random subdomain as a link to press. This particular domain was created just under a year ago, with the registrant seemingly coming from Chesterbrook, PA, but whose 403 page is in German. As for the From addresses, I just laughed.
