"Nationwidewide" Shame, the poor scammer couldn't even get the name right. At least he had fun playing around with different fonts.
"Please do not reply to this e-mail. Mail sent to this address cannot be answered."
This scammer is a total nutcase! Why go through all the trouble to specify a different Reply-To e-mail address if people can't reply to the e-mail? Anyway, who is going to reply to an e-mail when the Reply-To address doesn't even belong to the sender.
