1. They misspelled "Renewal" in the title line.
2. Poor Grammar in first sentence ("another year of safe and secure computing experience") - and elsewhere (run-on 3rd sentence, for example).
3. The return address is some hapless person's gmail account that was hacked.4. The use of pressure to get you to act ("We will automatically process the charge on 13th of April 2021"). That's tomorrow. Note use of foreign date formatting.5. The typo in the last line ("if you wish to stop this from getting charge").6. The ridiculous price being quoted ($299.99).
7. Usually a legit e-mail will have the last four digits of the account they are going to charge listed.
