How appropriate, an e-mail address that's literally spoofed. This scammer is definitely on drugs and he must have been on a trip when he sent this e-mail.
Is there anyone in this world who will fall for a lousy phishing scam like this? What was this scammer thinking? He should have hired a proofreader because no one will take this e-mail serious.
Threatening someone to do something that has supposedly already been done. The scammer said that they already "locked" the account temporarily, so what's the use of suspending it temporarily as well?
This is what you call genuine phishing scammer logic (or should we replace logic with idiotic behaviour).
