Worst scam email ever

Dear PayPal scammers,

I appreciate the efforts you make to get me to reveal my confidential PayPal account information, but here's a tip: the next time you send out a spam message, try and spell "customers" correctly. "Costumer" is a word, but I don't think it's what you meant. Also, you might want to run "spell check" on the message while you're at it. It wouldn't hurt, either, to find a native speaker of English to go over the grammar and syntax. I've highlighted a few of your mistakes in the attachment. I may have missed a few; they were rather numerous.

Good luck next time!
