    Eh, you're lucky you don't get the crap I get. They actually try to get my shit, and it ain't automated like that. You can tell when they spoof their headers and make personalized letters trying to use minuscule facts they know about me to try to scam me. I've gotten like 3 emails from "[email protected]" asking me to renew my account, except when I click to view full headers, I see some shit hotmail address. Same for my paypal account, some emails from "[email protected]"and "[email protected]" and I've even gotten emails from people claiming to be Hendrik, ZoiD, or ShadowFrench (who I am now convinced died in some sort of freak accident). So yeah, you're lucky your email account isn't flooded with random ass shit.
