That’s just sad. They probably outsourced their phishing to China, and forgot to specify “must have good English skills” in the contract.

Hehe that one gave me a good chuckle. What’s bad personal info anyway? How do you get bad personal info? Who have they been talking to to determine that your personal info was bad?

I demand high quality phising attempts. I at least want to be tempted to update my ‘bad personal info’.

until then I will not ‘fallow’ any of that there dem links.

I got one recently promising me a place in the beta- They had me going for about 4 minutes. I even told my wife… the game was up when I looked closely at their URL though.
