b> Got this very bizarre email today, which is obviously a scam lol.
b> What's interesting is that the text underneath the "please do not
b> reply" sentence only became visible when viewed in plain text or
b> highlight in the original html format. Just shows the dangers of html
b> email (sigh).

Even without HTML font fun, one could abuse multipart/alternative
MIME encoding.
