Phishing Email Gets More Sophisticated?

Email efforts to trick you into taking some action to reveal information about yourself or introduce spyware or other malware into your computer (sometimes known as “phishing” efforts) have gotten increasingly sophisticated and clever.
But, not always.
Take the first few sentences of an email I just received, please.
The money quote (all typos in original):
“Dear eBay Member,
We recenlty noticed one or more attempts to login into your eBay account from a more IP address and we have reasons to belive that your account has been used by a thirth party. In order to protect your sensitive information or unauthorized listing we temporality suspended your account for further investigations.”

My favorite part: “In order to protect your sensitive information or unauthorized listing . . . .” Surely I do want my unauthorized listing protected, right?
At least these phishers have a sense of humor, even if they have no spell-checker or grammar checker.
