Another stupid attempt at a scam

Had this arrive this morning supposedly from PayPal and thought you all might all like to have a laugh over it.

"We have temporarily limited your account.

Dear customer,

We have noticed suspicious activity with your account.

Following these facts, we have made the decision to prohibit you from using our services in order to make sure that it is indeed you.

You can no longer:
• Send money
• To recieve money

If you do not complete the verification within 48 hours, your account will be permanently closed and an amount of € 19.99 will be debited from your main payment method."

French original
"Nous avons temporairement limité votre compte.

Cher client(e),

Nous avons remarqué une activité suspecte concernant votre compte.

Suite à ces faits, nous avons pris la décision de vous interdire d'utiliser nos services afin de nous assurer qu'il s'agit bien de vous.

Vous ne pouvez plus :
• Envoyer de l'argent
• Recevoir de l'argent

Si vous ne procédez pas à la vérification sous 48 heures, votre compte sera définitivement fermé et un montant de 19,99€ sera débité de votre moyen de paiement principal."

What's funny about it? The e-mail address it came from: rowan @ahomeformumordad.com.au

Yeah, definitely from PayPal.
