    LOL! That's definitely ballsy!

    Probably the BS inside is going to claim that they're afraid your account was compromised by phishing.

    And if you believe their claim, and put your info into their screen...sure enough it will then be compromised, and it will have been by phishing!

    Are you sure it wasn't your email provider that inserted [PHISHING]? I know some insert [SPAM] when the message has a high spam score rating, even if it's not actually spam.

    I though of that possibility when I first saw it, but i'ts the only message I've ever received with that in the subject; never seen it in any other phishing email, before or since.
