Well, right up to the bit where it says ‘download this’ I think I would’ve gone for it.
It does make you wonder – the spam and scam-mails that you see usually have an obvious FAIL somewhere in them. I mean, you’ve got this far in getting the email addresses, setting up the bot, why do you not bother doing a spellcheck, for example?!Posted 6 years ago
