Nintendo DS is the New Viagra

DS Lite is the New ViagraMy work email account gets spammed horribly. Guess they found a way around the munging tool I used to scramble all of the clickable email addresses on our website. Fuckers.

Clearing out my junk folder this morning, I spied the subject line “Nintendo DS system” from a sender named “Hummer Lexus”.

WTF?

I guess this means the DS is now in the same league as horny college sluts and the iPod: a commodity ostensibly desired by enough people that it’s now become a spam or phishing lure.

Either that or this is a highly targeted spam campaign–which would be real spooky.

I took a screenshot of the full email message. Click the thumbnail for a larger view.

Spam email using DS as lure

Thanks to Cabel for the nifty DS Lite Photoshop template.

    thanks for the information about the spam. my primary email address is riddled with that exact formatted email spam. I get them all the time now when I’ve never gotten spam in that email for over 1 year. It makes no sense. I will certainly take better precautions going forward
