Sounds like some desperate attempts at phishing to me now. It guess it was so lame that our anti-spam software ignored it.

Yeah, you sort of feel compelled to take pity on on this desperate attempt. It's just so far off the mark.

I haven't heard of PHP being used to combat phishing.

I thought that phishing had sort of died now since most people are far more aware of such things. I guess there are still some gullible people out there that fall for it.

Even anti-spam filters experience lulz once in a while.

I think the filters even took pity on this one and forwarded it along. Or, they forwarded it for laughs.

I don't know... it might be real! You should do what it says, so that you don't lose any reppels.
