I received 4 of these messages on 2 different email accounts with 3
different email addresses in the body of the spam. Googling the email
addresses revealed very little about them other than the fact that 1 of them
was a valid address used as a replyto in a craigslist ad. My assumption is
that the names being used in the spew are the ones being joe jobbed
therefore the ones who pissed off spammy. Here are the trackers for the
other 3 if you care to look at them.
