Dinosaur spam

It's standard spammer practice to desperately munge words like Viagra and Rolex to avoid spam filters. But it's especially sad when a self-proclaimed "CAN-SPAM compliant" spammer has to disguise his company name in spams.

I received one of these today in an unsolicited pitch for cellphone ringtones. The sender's company name was displayed in the email like so:

T-Re>< |\/|edia

The 1499 Blake Street 1-H, Denver address listed in the message corresponds to T-Rex Media, LLC, the Colorado company owned by Jeff Perreault, former sales manager for spam king Scott Richter. Spam Kings Blog: Dinosaur spam
