Spam: My new career ... as a cyber mule


Some cybercrooks have apparently harvested a bunch of email addresses from the New York Times online resume database. Mine was among them. (Yes, I'm looking for a full-time job.)

"We have read your resume and application on NYtimes.com, and believe that you may suit our standards," said the emails. Spam Kings Blog: My new career ... as a cyber mule?
