This Phisher is...um...Confused

The guy mailing this phishing message is in such a hurry to scam Charter One Bank customers of their identities, that he forgot to change his mailing template thoroughly. Here's the From: field:

From: "Charter One Bank" <aw-confirm@ebay.com>

The Reply-To: field of the message header points to the same eBay address.

A spelling checker wouldn't hurt, either, as indicated by this line:

Subject: Reactive Your Registeration

I won't bore you with even more horrendous language that tries to scare me about suspicious account activity "which resulted in your account temporary suspension."

The phishing pros must cringe when they see rookies exposing the scam for what it is. He he he.
