Phishy copywriting pt. II

Apparently, I've reached the daily limit on my RBS account.

Although even if I had an RBS account, I'm not sure I'd be worried. You don't have to be told by your bank: 'no-one will ever send you emails with sentences that don't begin with capital letters' to know that banks will never send you emails with sentences that don't begin with capital letters. It's just not the done thing.

If you know any spammers or phishers that need help with their copy, don't forget to send them my way. I'll post their efforts here and will even give you a cut if they employ me to sort it out.

I like the opening "Dear Member", it sounds like they are personally addressing your manhood.

Or perhaps they do know me personally after all.
