Shady E-mail Writers Evident

June 2, 2016


So my spam e-mail folder and other like e-mail products were running under normal numbers over the weekend, suggesting that a lot of e-mails that get through filters are run by e-mail mules: ordinary people hired on to try to send out as many e-mails from “legitimate” e-mail addresses as possible.

I almost responded to a Craigslist offer for such a job. I was between jobs and kind of desperate. Not a good place to be in and I needed to find money anywhere I could get it.
