Sorry, spammers, but James Comey is no longer FBI Director

This is a generally unremarkable spam message except for the obvious. James Comey was fired as the Director of the FBI on May 9. That makes it unlikely that Mr. Comey can deliver the promised $1.2 million. Bummer.

The missing spaces are just the way they were in the message. I do like the comment about things being in the spam folder. Let’s blame the Internet Service Provider!!

If you get messages like this, delete them – don’t reply.
