Marketplace or fishing attempt

“Dear PoPville,

I’m 98% sure this is a ham-handed but legit attempt to catch people who encountered trouble enrolling ahead of the December 15th deadline, but… seriously?

Note that it was sent after 6pm on the day of the (extended) deadline, so I’d have plenty of time to check it out. At least there was no upside down flag?”
