Persistent SPAM

By Michael Seese

So, if you can't entice me to click on a link to find the location of package which I know nothing about, perhaps you think you can entice me to click on a link to learn about a court action which I know nothing about.

To be honest, these guys are amateurs. Remember, one way the spammer-scum try to get you react is by adding a sense of urgency. Where is the urgency behind "You do not have to be present at trial in person if the Court does not suggest otherwise."

One the positive side, this particular message has quite an international flair. The sender is  

Since you probably don't know, the top-level domain -- the .at at the end -- signifies Austria. 

And the link

would take me to Estonia where, as we all know, the Ohio Third District Court Of Appeals stores their sensitive documents.  (At least there is an Ohio Third District Court Of Appeals.)

And finally, similar to the last one, it would appear that multiple courts want to know that I don't really need to show up, as this is what my junk folder looks like

Too bad. I could have used a vacation to Hawaii.

Surf safe out there.
