Fairly sophisticated PayPal scam

This one has your real name in the salutation, which worries me. However, if you look at the full headers, the return path isn't actually PayPal. And if you read all the way down, through the very convincing-looking payment details, the shipping address is to
Nasreen Ali
218A Henry St.
Somerset, NJ 08873

Makes you wonder if Mr. Ali is a real person, or just a dummy address. Presumably, it's not the scammer, but who knows? Maybe he has friends in Nigeria. (Now, that would be an interesting way of harrassing someone, too. Put their name and address into a PayPal phish scheme.)
