Intersting spam-scam uses Amazon delivery as a hook

Publication:

The email is doomed to be subject to review because the idiot sender has spoofed the recipient's address and used it as the sender's address. But, otherwise, for the unwary, in the period leading up to critical gift delivery period, the scam has a high chance of success.

============== SCAM MAIL =================
From "Order Details" but using the recipient's address as the sender
Subject [the part of the e-mail address before the @ sign]. Payment received#88602, Dated: December 15
Body
**Hi [the part of the e-mail address before the @ sign]., **

*Your Amazon order #568-69568622-3364125 is out for delivery. * *

***CLICK ON SHOWIMAGES FOR LINKS AND IMAGES.

=========================

Notes: The fake links to Amazon.com are apparent because we do not allow delivery of html mail to users. It is therefore immediately apparent if the link is fake to reduce the risk of users clicking. Note, also, that there are obvious inconsistencies in the numbers used in the subject and in the body.
