Phishing Email - Not from eFax

Today's Phishing experience is brought to you by 'Not from eFax'.

Let's work through the highlighted fields to show why this is a 'fake' email and deserves nothing but the delete key:
​Name of the sender is shown as eFax.com and the email address is shown as This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
The correct format for an efax email is your fax number then the efax domain, e.g. 0299999999@efaxsend,com
Next, the email is flagged as 'Possible Spam' on the Subject line.
When you hover your mouse over the 'here' option it displays the following website http://agelessbuy.xxx/1.php?id=This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
Neither the email address nor the website have any association with eFax.
Our SPAM filter also displays the sender details as This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
Finally, the email recipient doesn't have a eFax account
