in this case, it's easy to spot that www.paypal.com is not the server you are going to.
this goes to the www.paypal.com site, then a script in the site redirects the reader to www.attacker.com. For this to
work, it is assumed that www.paypal.com has that script, and that it doesn't check for phishing redirection URLs.
this is a more insidious attack, in that most non-techy people don't realise that the server being sent to here is
www.attacker.com and doesn't go near www.paypal.com at all. most techies might catch it, but it might fool them at first
