Spam Spam Spam Phish!

Just got this in my model contact email. Isn't this awful? If anybody doesn't know, if you got a direct deposit refund they'll just use that same information, and if you sent them money they'll just send back a check. They don't email you asking for this kind of thing.

My favorite bit is at the end - explaining why it might be in your spam folder. Um, because it's spam?

Over 130 million Americans will receive refunds as
part of President Bush program to jumpstart the economy.

Our records indicate that you are qualified to receive the
2008 Economic Stimulus Refund.

The fastest and easiest way to receive your refund is by
direct deposit to your checking/savings account.

Please follow the link and fill out the form and submit
before May 10th, 2008 to ensure that your refund will be
processed as soon as possible.

Submitting your form on May 10th, 2008 or later means that
your refund will be delayed due to the volume of requests we
anticipate for the Economic Stimulus Refund.

To access Economic Stimulus Refund, please (Phishing link removed!)

NOTE: If you received this message in you SPAM/BULK folder, that
is because of the large amount of e-mails we are sending out
or because of the restrictions implemented by your ISP.
