06/02/2015: spammers emulate the pot calling the kettle black it seems

This email was forwarded to me by a customer today who was very concerned that her email account had been hijacked.

This phishing attempt uses the name of Spam Assassin to try and convince recipients to follow a link to 'protect themselves'. Under no circumstances should this happen.

I traced the url that the link leads to and it is a doormat and mop rental company in California, whose account presumably has been hacked for this purpose.

Suffice it so say that if you also receive this scam email, it should be deleted immediately, not opened and definitely not acted upon.
