Ah, so cruel! Preying on those who feel insecure and who want to believe ICANN (or just any "authority") might take the lead in the fight against spamming and scamming. Just how many receiving that thing might inhabit the overlap of those two population sets is another matter. But using the name of Fadi Chehadé is a slight overkill.

But - almost the best yet. Lord help us when Gen Y-ners actually take up the reins and official-business correspondence adopts the "informal" style of phrasing and off-key vocabulary the little devils use. The best? Well, the "Nigerian Astronaut" still has my vote.

Link currently identified as malware/malicious site by Fortinet, Google Safebrowsing and Sophos, "suspicious" by AutoShun according to virustotal.com, 47 others have it as "clean" (most) or "unrated". sitecheck.sucuri.net flags it as malicious on the basis of the Google Safe Browsing result. audioetraducao.com (host of the linked site) should be reported to abuse[at]datafoundry.com but "ISP does not wish to receive reports regarding ..." Presumably they have done something about it though it still has an internet address on DNS lookup which is distinct from the base domain address and I'm not looking.

I have to be honest...when I first saw it, for half a second I thought maybe it was a real email because of my reports to spamcop and KNUJON. Haha...
