    I had a phishing email delivered to my inbox overnight instead of my spam folder.

    At first is appears to be semi-legitimate, then I marked it as spam.

    It contains many of the common mistakes found within phishing email including:
    • Dear email address (instead of my real name)
    • Grammar errors
    • Incorrect user of spaces
    • Most importantly, hovering over the links shows sites within foreign domain names instead of google.com
