I don't give a damn about my bad repution

I, and probably you, get spoof e-mails all the time, purporting to be from some bank or other, sometimes even my bank, which is to say, Bank of America. Normally I do not feel this bears remarking upon, but today's fake B of A alert tickled me. First, the ever-so-professional sounding subject line:

Online ID Blocked UP

I just can't read that without attaching the word "yo" to the end. "Daaamn, this online ID is blocked UP, yo! Sheee-it."

And then there's the spoof URL (reproduced below without the main domain), which is trying really really really really really hard to make you think it is from Bank of America:

You know what would be cool? Somewhere in there (instead of the X's, I guess) to use the word "banketybank."

I have the feeling it may be from an establishment of ill reputate.
