Phishing emails

I’m a little disappointed at the declining standards for WoW phishing emails. Two years ago, most of them were at least facially plausible, if not artful. Spammers these days can hardly put a sentence together, much less have a shot at getting my WoW password and social security number. On the upside, they have gotten a bit more entertaining. The one I received this morning I found particularly enjoyable… even worth sharing with a few friends and the rest of the internet:
