A FEW WORDS ABOUT SPAMLINKS TO INTERNET REPORTING
Nothing torques me off more than getting SPAM. Especially, SPAM that says its from MY GOVERNMENT! Like everyone else, I enjoy several email accounts in order to counter SPAMMERS. I've had several in my personal email account that even claimed to be from the FBI. Rest assured, they were reported to the IC3. The latest SPAM to reach one of my many inboxes, claimed to be from the Department of Treasury and wanted to assist me with my IRS refund. The link provided in the email had a .nl suffix in the URL. I believe, that is the suffix for the Netherlands. That particular URL suffix SPAM, was a new one for me. A report was filed today with the Treasury - online. The IC3 provides a simple online interface to reporting that you should familiarize yourself with.... IC3.
The newest spam of the past month is absolutely hilarious:

[END OF SPAM MESSAGE - I found the copyright notice equally funny. As well as the lack of authorized signature, address to "undisclosed recipients", etc.]
