This email was masterfully crafted. Better than a soft pitch, this was an email worded kind of like I would, were I sharing something interesting:
I got this forwarded to me from a friend of mine, thought you might want to see it.All text, no HTML tricks, no graphics. Heck I read the whole thing. No way I'm clicking on the link, but it was pretty impressive. There's just no way to filter for this kind of attack because its indistinguishable from normal human correspondence.
You can download [stuff] and there's no restrictions, and there's a helpful section that explains how to transfer it to a CD or your portable device. Drop me a line once you've checked it out, let me know what you think. Its pretty cool...
