They just won't stop, will they? I love the Westnet/Exemail bit, as well as the multi-country stuff.

I got one today on my Exemail account purporting to shut down my TPG service (!!) if I don't cough up some more dosh. I was referred to a genuine TPG phone number to check my account. However a misnamed Windows executable was included as the payload. It was sent from an IP address in China.
