An email from PayPal?

Nothing to do with gender politics, but I’ve just received an email, purportedly from PayPal. It starts:

Your Account Will Be Closed !

You have to admire people who can’t write decent English, having a bash at internet fraud through representing themselves as working for financial institutions.

Ambition is a fine quality. In the same vein, you wouldn’t believe the number of expatriates with the surname ‘Buchanan’ who die in car or plane crashes every month – invariably in African countries, mysteriously – leaving multi-million pound sums in banks, just waiting for a safe place to be deposited. Sadly, I’m just too pressed for time to reply to the bank clerks who kindly inform me of these matters.
