Plain text is the best text

from my inbox

Lots of people and organizations have difficulty doing email properly, and scammers are no exception. Everyone is so focused on the HTML portion of the email they forget about the plain text version and you often find things you weren't supposed to see; whether it be the true URL (as seen above it's entirely wrong and totally suspicious) that is often disguised in the HTML email, or what appears to have been a place-holder for a URL in what I can only imagine was some kind of scam template. 

Nice of them to give it such a helpful label.
