You got to be kidding right? An obvious phishing email if I ever saw one. The problem is that as long as people keep falling for this shit we will never be free from getting this crap email. So, do us all a favor, if you get this just junk it, don’t even reply to it or you will be telling them that they have reached a legitimate email address and then the floodgates will open and you inbox will be filled with this shit.

      Actually I heard the reverse is true, that if you can fool one Aussie then you can suck in a thousand Yanks, so they’re probably using us as a measuring stick to see how many of you guys they can rope in 😉
