Yahoo Mail: fake message??

  Rabi 00:09 19 Nov 2004

I received the following message in my Yahoo Mail Bulk folder, and would like to know if anyone has seen this message in their yahoo Mail account? It comes with an attachment, which I have not opened:

If that is an exact copy of the message, I would doubt very much that it's genuine. The English is not very good, and the layout of the message looks sloppy.
