One of Recipezaar’s customer service e-mail addresses recently received the following spam messages:

_Dear user of, We warn you about some attacks on your e-mail account. Your computer may contain viruses, in order to keep your computer and e-mail account safe, please, follow the instructions. For further details see the attach. Attached file protected with the password for security reasons. Password is 03753. Kind regards, The team _
_Dear user of, Some of our clients complained about the spam (negative e-mail content) outgoing from your e-mail account. Probably, you have been infected by a proxy-relay trojan server. In order to keep your computer safe, follow the instructions. For details see the attached file. Kind regards, The team _

Now, of course, I know this didn’t happen, because, well Troy/I = Recipezaar, but imagine someone at Earthlink or AOL or some random ISP getting the same message…
