An Absolutely True and Unexpected Message #6 and #7

These two entries in the Get-Folks-to-Click-Here Olympics provided plenty of entertainment for me.
The first is remarkably legitimate seeming, from the subject line of “Your fedex.com will soon expire!” to the sender, “Fedex Online Service.” But all is revealed with “you have not access fedex.com…”

The second is obviously fake, and even omits my name from the “Dear ,” and lacks punctuation and capitalization,  but, well, maybe she is a very, very busy “62 yr old.” Lastly, her name changes at the end to the curious “Laura-Green,” which I find oddly appealing.
