When I receive unsolicited credit card info in the mail I typically fill up the envelope with junk and mail it back in the pre-paid envelope. If you don’t do that, they don’t pay for use of that envelope and it kinda serves as a means of saying, ‘take that!’ While this has probably no effect (unless we all united and did it?) it still makes you feel a heck of a lot better.
Well, here’s an email equivalent. I just received the following spam mail and thought I’d share in case any of you were on the prowl for telephone numbers to prank call or fake email addresses to use when you sign up for various web services. Feel free to prank call or send a random email to this fake company.
