Bad Spelling and Grammar Never Pay

I'm sorry, but I get such a kick out of the bad spelling and grammar that generally accompanies phishing schemes (e-mail cons that try to get you to reveal personal information such as credit cards so the cons can use them for their own purposes). Here's a fine example that arrived in my inbox today from an Amazon impersonator:
This process is mandatory, and if not completed within the nearest time your account or credit card may be subject for temporary suspension.

We encourage you to log in and perform the steps necessary to restore your account access as soon as possible. Allowing your account access to remain limited for an extended period of time may result in further limitations on the use of your account and possible account closure.

For more information about how to protect your account please visit Amazon Security Center. We apologize for any incovenience this may cause, and we apriciate your assistance in helping us to maintain the integrity of the entire Amazon system.
