From My E-Mail Spam Folder

Hi User,

   We discover a multiple illegal attempts on your mail account from a different IP locations,mobile device or other location you've never used before.

Who writes these things?  Do they think that any literate person would fall for this ploy?  Maybe I should volunteer to teach a little English to these people.  I think I could improve their success rate.  And don't call me a user.

A few weeks ago, for several days in a row, I was receiving an email every day, ostensibly from my ISP, telling me that my account had been used in Sweden and all I had to do was provide my ID and password "to make it well again." I figured even AT&T would not have worded things quite that way. But these spam emails must work some of the time or no one would send them.
