Unfortunately the non tech savvy, and particularly older users DO get fooled by this type of thing....we are not all so well informed and many people simply use their Macs without concerning themselves with what's a going on behind the scenes. Yes, it's an obvious email, but it will catch people out, if it didn't, the hackers wouldn't bother with this type of thing.
