Phishing Email - Not the Commonwealth Bank

Today's Phishing experience is brought to you by 'Not the Commonwealth Bank'.

Let's work through the highlighted fields to show why this is a 'fake' email and deserves nothing but the delete key:

    1. Name of the sender is Commonwealth Bank but the email address is This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
    2. Possible Spam pre-fixed to the subject
    3. Outlook has added a warning 'This message was identified as a phishing scam.'
    4. If you hover over the 'Click here to proceed' you are shown the following web site http://www.viamanaus.###.br/wp-admin/user/account/Login.php
    5. Our SPAM filter also displays the sender details as This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Then there is the poor English and Grammar
