I cautiously visited the site, and what do you know, it looks like any ordinary business. But what kind of name is pirrafe? Like giraffe?
A Google search for pirrafe.com brings up one result, for parafe.com. Looks like some kind of vacation site.
A Google search for piraffe.com brings up one result, for praffe.com. "24kt Genuine Italian Snakeskin Bracelets and Leather Cuffs."
Weird. I guess some computer somewhere went crazy!
Here's a completely unrelated thought. Today it occurred to me that each time I post one of these spam messages, I am also posting the email of the supposed sender. Email addresses in plain sight on the web are often harvested by bots for spam purposes. So, am I facilitating an influx of spam for the spammers?
They probably have better spam protection than the rest, seeing as how they're the perpetrators!If you enjoyed this post, I'd be delighted to have you as a subscriber to my RSS feed.
