Hotmail still home of the 419 fraud spams
Four different 419 fraud spams ("Dear Sir/Madam, I know this email will reach you as a surprise ..." etc. etc. ) made it through Brightmail's spam filters to me this evening. All were sent from MSN Hotmail accounts. The headers showed a variety of originating-IP addresses in Nigeria.
I wonder if the Internet cafes in places like Lagos have picked up word yet about the new alliance between Microsoft and Nigeria's Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), not to mention the recently proposed law to make spam fraud punishable by 5-year jail sentences.
