I don’t see much spam, as my mail server has decent filters. This one made it through though, and I have to give them points for their targeted marketing. It seems specially crafted to snare those who have already been fooled once. If it succeeds at all, it is only because ‘survival of the fittest’ has been supplanted by ‘laws for the stupid’. I have no pity for anyone who falls for this one:
