really strange phishing

Posted in Random thoughts, Too Much Information at 9:19 am by ducky

I got email from a “Carlie Martindaley” today that sure looks like phishing:

Ducky <at> webfoot.com,   (the email address was properly formatted in the message I got)

Hello Ducky,

I am from your Middle School years and finally got your email.

I have fallen in love with your shoes and I just wanted to know, did you spray paint them? They are so shiny, like fresh glass on a mirror, I cannot resist sending this email. Please tell your shoes, I love them, and thier laces are the most beautiful things.



  1. Starting off with my email address before my name looks fishy, like a computer generated it.
  2. I don’t know any Carlie.
  3. I don’t know any Martindaley.
  4. I didn’t go to Middle School.
  5. I haven’t painted any shoes.
  6. I haven’t sent any old pals email.

The strange thing is that there was no call to action in the message!  The only links were a mailto URL attached to my email address (I took it out for the purposes of this post) and a generic Yahoo ad at the bottom of the page.

Strange.  Maybe the spambots have gotten lonely?
