I love it when...

phishing emails claiming to be legitimate companies have typos in their emails. Because I am *sure* Amazon doesn't know the difference between below and bellow.

Here's the lovely phishing email I got this morning from 'amazon':

We are contacting you to inform you that our Account Review Team identified some unusual activity in your account. In accordance with Amazon's User Agreement and to ensure that your account has not been compromised, access to your account was limited. Your account access will remain limited until this issue has been resolved. To secure your account and quickly restore full access, we may require some additional information from you for the following reason: We have been notified that a card associated with your account has been reported as lost or stolen, or that there were additional problems with your card.
This process is mandatory, and if not completed within the nearest time your account or credit card may be subject for temporary suspension.
To securely confirm your Amazon information please click on the link bellow:

yea cuz THAT looks like amazon's URL.

Who actually clicks on this stuff and enters their personal information? Misspellings and strange a URL weren't a tip off enough?
