____________ 2015/10/15 Update
Received email from a legitimate company, but I will go directly to that company rather than following the emailed links. I did not see any risks for children in any past email from this site.
____________ 2011/06/24 Original
Phisher, currently pretending to be Microsoft "Bing Webmaster" service, sending emails from nonexistent domain microsoftemail.com. This spam email is very professionally crafted with clean HTML; however, there are some stupid mistakes which are clearly not Microsoft. Do not provide it with any financial or personal data.
*** SPAM AGENT *** (mirror domain: [exacttarget.com]) - many BRAZILIAN SPAMMERS are client of this server, that makes INSANE SPAMVERTISES using FAKE E-MAIL ADDRESS and FAKE UNSUBSCRIBE FEATURES in the unsolicited messages. P. ex.:
Spamvertise "client": a brazilian e-commerce called
[marisa.com.br] with "bridges" featured by [cl.s6.exct.net] ;
Spammer e-mail address: parceiromarisa @ [FAKE DOMAIN] ;
Unsubscription feature: [cl.s6.exct.net/ ... [FAKE DIRECTORY]] >>> NOT WORKS or simply SCAM (in this case, the e-mail address of the spam victim is CONFIRMED so that after they send more and more spam). That's sick.
*** AGENTE PROPAGADOR DE SPAM *** - possui um domínio-espelho (exacttarget.com) ou outros mais, e tem em seus quadros de "clientes" DIVERSOS SPAMMERS MAL-INTENCIONADOS DO BRASIL-SIL-SIL que enviam SPAMS INSISTENTES COM ENDEREÇOS DE E-MAIL FALSOS E LINKS DE DESCADASTRAMENTO QUE NÃO FUNCIONAM OU QUE APENAS SERVEM COMO GOLPE (apenas confirma a existência do endereço de e-mails das pobres vítimas para assim depois enviarem mais e mais spam). Nem preciso dizer mais nada sobre o que acho de toda essa porcaria e principalmente desses FDPs.
