0847 - Truth in spamming

Subject: Love yourself

This spam was sent using an innocent third party as the fake sender address who will pick up bounces and misdirected spam complaints. It went out via a third party host (broadband host in the USA), i.e. stealing someone else's service.
It was sent to addresses harvested off websites at random to people who have no interest whatsoever in fake watches, stealing their time.

Whoever is sending this spam has no regard for other people whatsoever.

I'm a little confused about this one (since I can't seem to find a way to view/see/appreciate) the spam that actually got you irritated !

I should be clearer: the posting is a direct quote of the spam, with only addresses and the actual advertising text removed. The remainder was in the spam message itself.

Wow !!

Are you saying spammers are starting to 'Meta spam' ?
