    Standard phishing email. Lots of people get taken in by that shit.

    Did it have your real, full name, or just part of it?

    Hm, interesting. They must have bought your email address from a good source ;).

    Usually when they send them to me, they just say the first part of my email address, assuming that's my name. Makes it pretty obvious that it's not real.

    People can get your email and name off a mailing list from everywhere these days.
