Spammers are getting more clever. I got a letter from "Dora Casso" today offering to exchange links- just reply to her email.
Here's where it gets clever. They managed to make it look personalized from my website. "She" claims that I have the #3 Google listed site for "preacher kid." This seems plausible, as my Tori Amos page is named "Preacher's Kid Gone Bad!"
It hadn't occured to me to search that way. "Preacher kid" as listed does me no good, but in fact I find my site listed as #6 for "preacher's kid."
Hmm. Why would someone be looking for links to pages about preacher's kids? I was about curious to see what kind of page this was.
I noticed, however, that there was no link. "She" wants email. Also, the doracasso.com domain from whence her email supposedly came doesn't exist.
A quick search for "Dora Casso" led me to THIS page from someone who has received such a letter. The comments have numerous amusing examples of different supposed Google searches that had led Dora to their sites. My favorite was "chinese tattoo translation."
Still don't get what the point of this spam is, though.
