Worst Amazon SPAM yet

I have seen my fair share of Amazon.com spam over the years. Some of it is actually pretty clever. This one, however, it gets the prize for the worst ever:


Thank you for your recent order with Amazon.com.

The sad part is that this was all in plain text, not even a mock up of an Amazon.com receipt. Where is the effort people?

But I guess if I am getting this stuff, it means people are falling for it. They open that zip file and they wonder why things are going wrong on their computer.
