How to Scare Phisherees...Not!

In their attempts to get potential phishing victims to click on the bogus links in their messages, phishers are getting increasingly strident in the presumed consequences of ignoring their messages. But for Pete's sake, it's hard to take anyone seriously when the warning (as in this Western Mutual phish) reads like the following:

If you choose to ignore our request, you leave us no choise but to temporaly suspend your account.

And they split an infinitive, to boot! If regular law enforcement can't stop these guys, maybe the Spelling or Grammar Police can.
