    The trouble with these kinds of insidious scams is that they often prey on the elderly.
    Or perhaps someone with poor eyesight… or even the person who is not quite paying full attention. I’m guessing that they are sent out en masse, so there are probably always a few people caught unawares.
    They also give a bad name to people who are working on legitimate email marketing.

    Thanks for the warning. Hopefully someone will track that person down to prevent something like this from happening again.
