Don't you just love the way the French blends so seamlessly with the Portuguese in this scam?

Google is obviously having a bad day. I could be deeply offended at the omission of "Estimada" in the salutation. But I am not. I am annoyed that neither Windows nor my other anti-spam control did not alert me to this. It landed straight in my Inbox.
The e-mail originates in France.
