Jewish World Review Dec. 1, 2004 / 18 Kislev 5765
Our website receives spam every day. I am not really sure how we ended up on so many nasty mailing lists but every day we receive hundreds of e-mails offering to help us engage in every type of sin.
The most obvious: porn sites telling the Abrams Report about women who want to meet us now. They include some, lets just say, photos… And if we want to prep for our meeting we are regularly enticed to, well lets just say, enlarge certain parts of our body. Once we finish the procedure we can head to other regular solicitors who offers pills, primarily sexual enhancements drugs
A part from sex, there are the sites that would help us liquidate our assets, so to speak. Gambling sites offering us a "unique opportunity" to bet on just about anything offshore (including the Peterson trial) and hundreds of e-mails claiming to be from wealthy foreigners desperate to help us by letting us help them cash in their quote inheritance or effectively launder millions for a fee I am certain.
So let me make one thing clear: this is a legal program. We are not going to utilize the services of a shady organization, some of them, I would venture to say, offering to help us commit crimes.
In fact, maybe one of these days we'll do a story on just one day's spam and try to figure out what's legal and what's not. You have been warned.
