Spam at work

Having kept my work email address very private for almost 10 years now, suddenly it’s become a target for Spam. It started a few weeks back with a few targeted emails from companies in the computer industry, suggesting that one of our clients had probably sold their contact database. Then this morning I received an email from a company called Laithwaites trying to sell me bottles of wine. The Spam didn’t come from their email domain, they used a domain of which is owned by Primiere Global Services who are an “eMarketing provider” which means they offer bulk spamming services. Well done Laithwaites, no better way to wreck the name of your company than hiring a bulk spamming outfit to do your advertising. Oh well, if the wine business goes down the pan, at least you’ll have contacts that can help you with selling Viagra and Penis Extenders.
