  1. The legalese in the email is also craptastic – obviously written by someone who wants to sound lawyerly, but doesn’t have the command of the language.

    It’s laughable, really, but what’s worse is that some people will be taken in by this sort of thing.

    • This was even followed up with three more attempts using other means of saying I needed to visit a site due to some violation. It was all nicely caught in the spam filter, but still, as you said, some people would have fallen for it.
