Any email that starts ‘You don’t know me, but…’ is bound to be spam. I wasn’t disappointed — this is classic phishing spam. All I would have to do is click on a disguised link, enter some personal details including my home address and payment details and I would be eligible for a fantastic prize.
That’s where it started to unravel. The prize was a dinner date with pretty boy Hugh Grant. Now who on earth would offer a dinner date with Hugh Grant, who is dead keen to shackle the freedom of the press, to a journalist? Targeted phishing this ain’t.
But seriously. What is it about a general election that suddenly legalizes spam?
Don’t vote, you’ll just encourage the buggers.
Or, more accurately, don’t vote: every vote is an endorsement for a corrupt and undemocratic system that is designed to keep the people economically enslaved.Submitted in: Expert Views, Kevin Townsend's opinions |
