Like most people I get of lot of spam. Sometimes it makes me cross. Here's one sent to scraped email address that is effectively a spamtrap.

So far, just a spam with a graphic in, but the email footer is what got my goat..

You receive this newsletter because you used google sometime and we send you our best deals.

Wait.. I received this spam because I use Google? I've never used any Google product in my life. Not even blogger. And then it goes on to say that the prices quoted may as well be completely made up. Which no doubt they are. Oh yes, SPAM spelled in CAPITALS is a trademark for a brand of tinned meat.

Now the stupid legal blurb which basically says we can spam you but you can't publish anything about our website, and now we'll quote some Spanish laws which may or may not exist but we are probably breaking by sending the spam (actually the relevant law is Act 34/2002 of 11 July on Information Society Services and Electronic Commerce, but I don't think they have read it).

Oh what was that about logos?

Say again?

The spam originates from (CPC Servicios Informaticos SL, Spain) with links to newsletters.tradaticket.com on (also CPC) and then onto luntravel.com on (OVH, France) [report here]. luntravel.com is registered to:

Dealing with spammers is never a good idea. I would avoid this bunch.
