Strange things you read in unsolicited email

http://www.sxc.hu/photo/1055089I saw this the other day “This is onetime email and you may ask us to “REMOVE” you from our mailing list.”

What’s so strange about that (apart from the grammar and spelling)? This was in an email sent via a contact form. Take a moment to let that sink in.

The spamming company filled in a contact form on a web page to send a message. They can’t be certain the message was delivered via email. They don’t know and can’t know the email address of the recipient of the message because it isn’t shown on the website. They know the domain and may be able to guess some of the usual suspects, info@, sales@, accounts@, but they don’t know a real email address. And they won’t know unless the recipient is gullible enough to send a message to “REMOVE” them from a mailing list.
