I got two spams like this one, about an hour apart, sent by the same spammer. This spammer is completely stupid.

First of all, only my ISP could make such a threat. And my ISP does not send me stuff from an educational site in Malaysia.
Second, the "link" HERE is not a link, so I could not get the contact form even if I wanted to do that.

It is just plain insulting. If they want to trick me into divulging sensitive information, they have to be more clever than that. I assume they will try again after a while when they get no results from this attempt.
