So, instead of just keeping it in my Spam Box, I just decided to give my feedback to the spammer :
Hi Dr. Patrick Allain, I think I am good enough to detect a Phishing attack like this. Spelling Mistakes, Wrong Capitalization and a great eye for Details mark a really good spammer. And, I saw all these here : You got the name of a Plane which Crashed, saw the list of the passengers who died, found the name of the man whose Country couldn't be determined, Harvested my eMail from somewher(probably my Blog), and sent me this Mail... Kudos to you man, but I'm not falling for this... On the Other Hand, I do have respect for your abilities, and I think you could put them to good useAnd, I actually got a reply for this from that spammer! :
