The guys who send these should have used 10 minutes to just create a legit e-mail.
Don't give them ideas now. These scoundrels will unfortunately get better at this with practice. No need to help them get there faster.....LOL

I'm available to proof read any phishing letters or pen them myself. At a cost of course.

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.
Thats Not All Folks

Yes, you'd think so, but have you looked at the grammar and spelling used by a lot of forum posters?
