WTF? WFP.org spam? Or is it emailciti.com?

This spam is promoting the UN's World Food Programme. I'm surprised the the WFP should sink so low, but perhaps they engaged the services of spammers without realising.

These people are persistent spammers who usually send through some unsolicited crap several times a week, using an email address that is effectively a spamtrap. What is really annoying is the the WFP is paying these spammers to run a campaign of dubious value when they could be helping to fee starving people.
