Are people really this gullible as to send their password unencrypted in a plain text email?! Not only that but in a manner that outwith the bounds of any previous interaction with the alleged company in question.

Well, I suppose if people are willing to hand over their passwords for £5 I shouldn’t be surprised.

THIS EMAIL IS A FAKE!
DON’T RESPOND TO IT!
YOU ARE ONLY HURTING YOURSELF!
