Bank of America Help Assistence

I swear I should hire myself out as a copy editor for scammers and finally earn some money in this spam game. The above email message has so many typos, grammos, and cultureos, that my fixes could guarantee a much greater response rate. The author of the above message is not from the U.S., so my help would be especially valuable if the goal is to lure unwary Americans to the phony baloney business (I believe it's ultimately to recruit money laundering mules).

My only hope is that when the above attempt fails, the crook will tell others that internet scamming doesn't work (when, in fact, it's low quality internet scamming that doesn't work).
