While it is relatively easy to spot for regular users of the Internet (especially due to the piss-poor quality of the English contained in the fake e-mail, and the fact that the encoding of the e-mail is set to Cyrillic), Internet novices should be familiar with this so as to avoid getting a heap of trouble.

This is fake:

Don't see the spelling error, but it looks as if it was written by a third grader.

"When the expiry date of your account expires"? Awkward to say the least.

It's a riddle. If you fail, you get phished. When the expiration date of your Apple ID expires, your account is no longer expired, so no action is necessary.

The whole thing is written so poorly. Unless Apple is now hiring 2nd graders to send emails nobody should have believed it.

The not capitalized "d" gave it away from me. Obvious.
