    You'd think these phishers would take the trouble to learn basic English grammar, not to mention how we write dates (mm/dd/yyyy format).


    If you responded to the phishing email, you need to hurry and change your password (plus let Yahoo! know).

  • WHY would they take the trouble to learn proper English grammar and North American date format? They can hook enough suckers without it to make it not worthwhile!
