This message has been reported as a scam by other Scamdex users previously.

Really..... I\'ve almost accepted the fact spam will try to get in my mailbox, but this cràp is reaching my phone now too. I don\'t even live in the UK. Wondering about what I\'m more annoyed about; the attempt to mislead or the fact the attempt is poorly executed.
