I hate spammers and phish sites, this is one example

This is one reason I like Gmail spam filter, it caught this piece of garbage. The spammers thought they would be clever and use white text to throw off the pattern matching software used by anti virus and anti spam programs. I just happened to notice it when I selected the text and saw it being inverted. I've put this on a gray background for your edification.
