Trying to sell me viagra, I can understand. This...
I just got this spam email. It is weird to me because it doesn't have a website, it has a phone number. So I called it. Just to see what would happen. A guy picked up pretty quickly and I said "Extension 57 please." And he said "who is that?" I was kind of caught off guard, I don't know who that is, you are supposed to know. So I looked at the from address and said "Leanna Mcclendon" and he said "Are you calling for information?" I said, "I got this number in an email and it said to call it so I did." He repeated "Either you're calling for information or you're not, what is it." I was a little spooked about by the exact phrase so I said, "no, I guess not." And hung up.
I can't figure out why the hell someone would send this email, and not have a purpose in the number that's being called. I'm familiar with dictionary attacks and sending emails to an address just to see if you get a bounce, but sbgreg is an address I use on a mailing list that is published online in the archives so they should know it's a real address. It's just bizarre to me what his goal could be.
