My email account needs blockchain maintenance?

OK, this is a weird one.

 

I've got what is obviously some type of phishing spam, which reports that my email account needs some kind of blockchain maintenance in order to improve user experience and reduce the rate of spam. (Nice touch.)

 

Yeah. I'll get on that right away.  (NOT!)

 

BLOCKCHAIN IS NOT THE ANSWER!!!

I think you need next generation blockchain. THAT would be the answer to your problems you didn't know you had.

Blockchain fixes everything didn't you know? Who even needs a bank account anymore anyway...
