spammer fail

NWC and I will often get research or student spam.  Today, he got one with a failure in the script, addressing him literally as "Dr {$name}."  Full message below the break.

Subject: May I contact you for a discussion of your recent research?

Dear Dr {$name},

My name is Joseph Li, a Ph.D. and the Business Development Manager of a world-leading custom antibody producer. If you have any interest in custom antibodies, could we arrange some time to discuss how our revolutionary technology would assist your research?

With our revolutionary techniques, within 4 months, by simply sending us the protein sequence, you will receive the tailor-made antibodies at only a fraction of current cost (e.g. 1100 Euro for 6 mAbs against 4 peptides of a protein).

We wish you great success with your research, and look forward to working with you soon.

Thank you very much and looking forward to your reply,

Best regards,

Joseph Yu Li, PhD
Business Development Manager
