Spam Emails from unknown sources claiming from paypal

I've received a email today, asking for my details. But, as I am aware of the online spams, I just checked the links source which were there in the e-mail. Many links directed me to the official paypal site. Here, computer illiterates fall in to the traps of online scams. But, one link it directed me to some other page, which is suspicious. 

 

Now, my doubt is does paypal team do something towards the persons who send such emails or not? If so, how can I help paypal team?

Forward it to spoof@paypal.com so they are aware of the 'type' of scams there are about and that helps their security systems.

However there is no way they can find out who the sender is unfortunately.
