A few days ago, I posted an email from “Ben Bernanke of the Federal Reserve” purporting to promise me millions in a phishing scheme. While not really credible, it was at least grammatical.
But that didn’t last long. Here’s a similar phishing scheme I received last night, with complete loss of grammar.
It’s also interesting that the Chairman of the Federal Reserve Board would have an aol.com email address ;)
