What's wrong with this?
Spelling - Apalling!!!.
The address doesn't exist
It has +4470 numbers (redirect)
They claim to be European Union - that doesn't mean America and the rest of the world, it means Europe - and using a bank in Uruguay??
The reply-to email address (consultant.com) is a free webmail from mail.com.
As for the 'from' email address, you'll find there's no actual website at http://europeanunion.com/, the name is just used for effect, as is the real website link
The organisation as it's spelt there doesn't exist.
