~~~ End of spam message ~~~
I reformatted this so it would fit on the blog area.
The last part is interesting. If I’m not the correct sucker I’m supposed to ignore the message. In addition to ignoring the message if I’m not the intended victim, I’m prohibited from sharing the message with others.
Now, I’m not a lawyer, but I’m pretty sure this scamming company has no recourse in the advent that a misdirected spam email is shared with others.
In fact, I’m so sure they have no recourse, I’ve posted this piece of spam here for all to see.
Also interesting is this says to fax the form after it’s filled out to a 212 area code which is in New York, but says the company is in Hawthorne, CA 90250 USA.
