Spam Abuse Hotline

I keep hearing about people getting conned out of money from phishing scams etc.

I really wonder who these morons are that get tricked by this stuff... Take for instance this great email I got today.

From: Earlene Duffy
Subject: Your d*ck will explode

Ummm... First off what kind of name is Earlene?

Furthermore, why would I want that to explode? Or is it a warning? In such case I am not going to waste time reading emails from people named Earlene.

Just to be safe I am keeping it on ice and wearing a cup.
