Dead giveaway

I've received this spam a couple of times recently, but the subject in this one stuck out. FYI, Mr. Spamalot, this contains a dead giveaway that it is not legit:

We are pleased to inform you that upon reviewing your
fiscal activity, we have determined that you are eligible to
receive a tax refund of $429,54.
Sorry, we in the U.S.A. use a decimal point, not a comma like they do in other places. Do try again (not), but thanks for the small amusement! Oh, yeah, the tax ID you listed as mine doesn't is wrong; sorry, but that's another giveaway.

Also, you have two kids, so your rebate should be much higher than that. Geniuses!

Thanks for stopping by to leave a comment. Be nice, and it'll stay. Be mean, and it'll go.
