Phishing or Joking ?

My manager forwarded me this email with a note ...

"I think this is the funniest, undoubtedly most clumsy phisher I have ever seen". 

**Note: CommonWealth Bank and Westpac are two different banks in Australia.   

This email is already one week old, but still it make sense. For somebody who understands phising emails, you will certainly agree and think these guys are joking. 

But in contrary, there's a wide population that does not understand anything of this and are vulnerable even to it's very obvious trick.   

The importance of continuous education and awareness is significant to Information Security and this was discussed in recent meeting of Anti-Spyware Coalition in Washing D.C.
