That will likely convince a few people to click on it. These scatter gun scams rely on landing in the inbox of someone with enough of a related connection to the subject to take it as being serious.

Pretty convincing. I get hit with a lot of phishes but not as good as this. I would be suspicious of the language - de-activation of the programmed (what?)

Probably from Africa or Asia, their English is getting better but still not convincing.

The grammar is deliberately bad on all scams, they want to hook idiots not smarter people who’ll waste their time.
They want to ensure the mark will go through the entire process and not get suspicious 1/2 way through so they get the smarter ones to self filter themselves out.
