Spam of the Day

File under Phishing, but I just received a relatively smart spam email:

Your history shows that your last order is ready for

To visit ://fake.url.of.no.provenance

Please visit the site to complete your order. Because you have
ordered from us previously, your prescription is pre-approved.

Thank you,

If a Web site I do business with frequently sent me this email, it might have been of actionable interest. Take note, Minimus and Delivery.com. But as it is, it's just not recognizable or clickable.

To the phisher's credit, they're reflecting an activity that frequent online customers want, need, and would act on. If only it were for real.
