Scammers Knows Misspelling Marketing

Scammers and their scams are easily exposed in the on-line world. Just google their email, or you can read this comprehensive guide to combat scammers.
What distresses me most is not that this is a typical scam letter, but that it even didn’t use a spell checker. There are a lot of spelling errors in it. on the other hand, I wish they are not using the Misspelling Marketing to push their scams.

Here is a scam letter:
