Someone Faking To Be from

I didn't think my site would be popular enough for someone to fake that they were from and send out phishing emails. has not requested any account information from anyone, so don't enter your information anywhere. The email reads like the following and has a zip file attached (one I have not opened so I don't even know what's inside of it, you shouldn't open it either... just delete the email):

Message contains attachments
1 File (24KB) -

A few comments:
  1. Why would I ever email myself something like this? The person who is phishing is stupid because if they didn't email me this, I would never had known something like this is going on.
  2. The grammar and spelling in the email is terrible, even for my standards.
  3. I refer to the site as and not (click to find out why).
Stay safe on the interweb peeps!
