Beware of New Email Scam! Although I don't Understand What the Purpose Is...
thought I was starting to pick up more hits from people interested in obtaining information related to the tax credit, home buying, etc, but apparently it's a new scam. The only thing is...I don't know why they are doing it.
Is it simply email harvesting so they can sell my address to a million other people that want to spam me or is it something even more sinister?
It seems the activity has reduced considerably as of 8-25-09. I don't see as many posts being indexed with Google so they've probably moved on to using new addresses or filled their site with enough content.
