Phishing Scam : Walmart TV’s

Ha!  That is pretty damn clever.  I think this is the first time I can remember of a “receipt” being sent out.  I am still curious as to why they can’t proofread their emails for spelling/grammar.  Is it for spam detection, or are they really just that lazy with it?

Furthermore, why isn’t there more done to ensure email origination?  I can see when a Twitter account has been “verified”, or if a Facebook account is authentic.  Where is the system for emails?  Maybe it is out there, and I just don’t know about it?
