Yet another phishing fail

Jun 25 2009 Published by under ... the Hell?

Sure, phishing emails are annoying as hell, but they're often so badly planned out that at least I can drag some entertainment out of them, as well.  I've posted some of my favorites before, namely the generic university phishing attempt and the all-time classic Christian lepers.

Today I was informed that I'm a winner:

The problem?  Aside from the poor English and the typos, the email address ends in '.fr'.  That isn't Australia...
