Yep, there have been a few odd things happening in spam land today.
 
We saw three messages that used devices that were clearly intended to get
arround the VeriSign spam filters. The ASRG list has been harvested and used
for spam source addresses. 
 
I suspect this means that there is some serious enforcement going on and
they are trying much harder to get arround countermeasures. 
 
If you do a search for the phrase 'modalities of the transaction' on google
you can find about twenty spam messages all by this same author.

Spam. To be specific, con artist spam. The goal of such messages is to get
you to pay some up front "fees" or to get your bank account number so they
can try to siphon off money from it. I get dozens of messages like this
every week, although they are usually more specific, with the sender
claiming to be some particular relation of some prominent person in some
African nation, most comonly Nigeria. Annually, those taken in by this scam
lose, in the aggregate, about $100,000,000.
 
You can be pretty sure that either this moor rose [rosermoor@yahoo.com] is a
criminal or someone is impersonating them.
