Triple Play SPAM Day

By Michael Seese

At the risk of jinxing myself, I don't get all that much SPAM. So I was surprised to find not one, not two, but three SPAM emails waiting for me yesterday.

If I may go into MST3K mode:

Yeah, my bank's employees all have names which require the Cyrillic alphabet.

This one almost got me, to be honest, mainly because I did just book airline travel. But it was not with American Airlines and, as I suggest when I teach "Infosec 101," hover over the link to reveal where it goes: Hmmm. That doesn't sound like American Airlines. (I intentionally did not show the images, since that potentially can be risky.)

I like this "Reply To" email address: 

They say that size does matter, after all. 

Until next time...


  1. But... that's MY email address.... *runs away* You heard nothing!

    1. I knew there was something phishy about you. (Snort! Chuckle!)
