          I find that 90% of the scam emails have poor grammar and/or spelling. In the one quoted, for example, “…all unused account” should be ‘accounts’. And “…In failure to verify your account” makes no sense. There are others. And yes, I agree with the poster that the email address is also a huge clue. Never ever click on an attachment in such emails.
