Poor quality phishing attempt on Windows Live accounts

Here’s another poor quality example of an attempt to extract information from my Windows Live account.  This time my account has been blocked.

What’s wrong with the email?

It is in the wrong font. Microsoft usually sends email in san serif fonts.

Windows Live is two words, not one

‘exceeded it’s sending’ – poor grammar

‘our customer’s account’ – the grocers apostrophe strikes again

Suspension has been misspelled

Link mismatch – phrealtyfunding.com.  Ha!

Its such a shame that so many people still click the link and are duped by these scammers…
