Is this a scam?

Recommended Posts

Of course it fuckin is, and a very poor one at that.    Received in the email : 

Dear Costumer AppIe

Actually, it's not as dumb as it seems.  They send out thousands, with deliberate errors.  Folk who are unlikely targets will spot the errors and not respond, so they don't have to waste time following up.  Anyone stupid enough to click on the link is much more likely to fall for the follow-up, so worth investing time.  Be safe out there.:grimreaper:

I employ a Chinese woman who used to work HR at Foxconn as a debt collector. Her communications are not dissimilar to the one above, and she is deadly good at getting what's owed by sheer, dogged annoyance.
