Whoa, I've suspended myself.
Don't you love the spam messages in which you're warned that your account is about to be suspended? (Oh no!) Today I received the following spam message:
Dear Philocrites Member,
We have temporarily suspended your email account email@example.com.
This might be due to either of the following reasons:
1. A recent change in your personal information (i.e. change of address).
2. Submiting invalid information during the initial sign up process.
3. An innability to accurately verify your selected option of subscription due to an internal error within our processors.
See the details to reactivate your Philocrites account.
Sincerely,The Philocrites Support Team
Of course I love the thought that I've contacted myself on behalf of myself to alert myself that something is wrong with my personal information. And so of course I'll promptly click on the evil .zip file and wreak havoc on my computer.
Friends, in case you get an email like this, please know that we at the real Philocrites Support Team would never spell "inability" incorrectly. We here at the Philocrites Support Team care about little things like that. And a reminder: Never, ever click one of those files.
