This is new

I got an e-mail from a "secret admirer" which led me to a blog post. Here is the blog post (with URL removed):

I've never seen spam like this before. It's a real blog post at (I reported it for spam.) You must admit it's clever and intriguing. But as soon as they mention the "CC or Debit" you know it's spam.

I have to admit that I'm curious to see how far the scam goes. Will there really be photos of someone with my name on them? I've seen that done with graphic trickery in other places -- someone with a name tattooed on them, but input a new name and the tattoo changes. It's a clever trick. But I won't check it. I'm not into porn, and I'm surely not into paying for porn!

I strongly suspect that, if I went any further it would end up being a woman with my name written on her body, because all of the porn spam I get is directed at men. But it's sent by people who obviously are too stupid to realize that Suzanne is not a man's name!

The fact they want a CC number is a red flag. But you know that. It is quite clever though.

Do you have the WOT plug-in installed?

Yeah, I mentioned the CC number. Didn't you read the whole thing?!

The what? The WOT?
