OK, let’s see:

  • Header says Hotmail
  • I would say non-personal greeting, but I’m not even sure what the purpose of the e-mail is.
  • Bad English, bad spelling
  • OBVIOUS Use of a bad translator.
  • Did I mention that I have no idea what the purpose of this e-mail is?
  • OK, this is another doozy of an e-mail.

But in this case, I’m not even sure what the purpose of the e-mail is.

It’s almost like it’s a public service announcement.

So, let’s have some fun with this one eh?

As a world class game company – Blizzard.

Ah, I can already hear the patriotic musing starting now…

“World of Warcraft” has always been proud of our work.

[Insert in sound of a needle being dragged across a record here]

Wait…what?

A game is proud of your work.  Wow, Skynet is ALIVE!

Seriously…a game is proud of your work…the players aren’t…but the game is.

In order to ensure the absolute fairness World of Warcraft.

It’s always good to ensure the game is fair.

We insist check our game server vulnerabilities

This is not has harsh as: We force check our game server vulnerabilities.

But it is harsher that: We soft check our game server vulnerabilities.

We used to : We cross check our game server vulnerabilities.

But it was outlawed by the NHL.

One day: We check our game servers for vulnerabilities.

and to do regular monitoring and inspection.

ummm…ok.

Even so we still find the game some of the bug

OMG…EWW!!

That must have been one big bug if you are still finding some of it…

has used it by some players

Remember parents: Bugs are a gateway drug…

We have sufficient evidence to indicate that you have tried to use these vulnerabilities.

Oh, this is the purpose of the e-mail…they are saying I tried to use some vulnerabilities.

Can’t I verify I’m the original owner of the account and get out of this?

We will change your account status to disable.

Oh, they are just changing my status to disable.  Whew…I’ll just wait a couple of hours and enable it again.

If Fruit you have any questions please visit [Misspelled Domain Name]

Wait…you’re telling me that you want me to visit this bad domain when I buy fruit?

You = wierd!

Oh, and if you really think I’m going to visit that domain….no.

And finally….Not Blizzard.
