Someone figured out how to troll LJ, grab our e-mail addresses, and spam us. I started getting them about three weeks ago. They also may have figured out that I am involved with the securities industry, because I've been getting "pump and dump" type adds for very obscure pink sheet companies that I would never consider owning in real life.

Unfortunately, a lot of it does get past my various spam filters, and I've been routinely deleting about six of these a day.

Today's had an ironically new twist. The company that they were touting is in the business of making anti-spam software.

I still deleted it of course. And if you don't know otherwise, never ever consider buying something reccomended in an unsolicited ad.
