Bank spam mails

I received this today. Although one of many, and they are always deleted courtesy of Mailwasher, I did rather like the "deliberate" mistake.

The bit I particularity liked was 'If not completed until November 31, we will be forced to close your account '!!

I am constantly getting these from banks some of which I have never heard of let alone my own bank and others I do know of. Also they are to an email address my bank or any other bank has knowlege of. All of my banking transactions where an email is required are to a dedicated address that is not used for anything else. Regarding spam emails offering me millions of £/$ these are quite amusing particularly spelling and grammar.
