This is one of my favorites, I think. Today's spam salad is one that I really do think I'll remember until at least the next one.

Anyway, the subject starts with making it seem like it's in response to or regarding something I'd sent, (or been indirectly involved in), about a 'SALE 82% OFF'.

Then I notice that the sender is 'VIAGRA INC'. Hmm...I don't remember sending anything to 'VIAGRA INC'.

Upon opening the message is where it gets really good. We transition from just a standard Viagra spam to making the jump to Microsoft supposedly selling me something!

OH, it's from Microsoft! Then, OF COURSE I'll buy it!

Um, no.

Every one of the links points to a unique, individual spam site. None of them, OF COURSE, point to Microsoft.


Spammers are silly, sneaky, and full of horse manure.
