Fake MS email with PGP signature

Normally I would not post this since it is nowadays a constant annoyance that we are living with: Fake emails for phishing, trojan, virus, worms, etc. purposes. But this one was special. Not only that it was good in mimicking the Microsoft language normally used but it also contained a PGP signature block on the bottom! Nice job.
