Phishing - You're doing it wrong!

I found this email in my spam box yesterday:

This email is from the fbi. We have an information for you regarding the person you are transacting with online. So we advise you to pause any transaction now and get back to us through this email below for further information.
Contact *******  ****** of the fbi secrete service on **********@hotmail.com


There are so many things wrong with this email. But the first thing that stuck out to me was the Hotmail address. Seriously! Why would the FBI use a Hotmail address? 

Phishing... You're doing it wrong!



Note: I blocked details because it looked like a hacked personal account.

It's done on purpose so only very silly people fall for it, which makes it easier for the perpetrator of the scam. This is also why emails like these often have misspellings and errors "obvious" to semi-intelligent people.
