Skip to comments.'Obama found dead in shock accident' email being sent around
Posted on 07/05/2008 8:29:18 AM PDT by Grig
My spam filter grabs a non-spam email now and then and I've been monitoring what it does so I can adjust the settings and make sure it stops doing that. One of the spam I got last night had the title 'Obama found dead in shock accident'.
I'm sure if it said 'Bush' or "McCain' instead of Obama conservatives would be up in arms about it, and so I hope also see this in the same light.
I'm in Canada so I'm sure if this breaks a law or not up here. Have any of you in the USA received this and reported it?
They are trying to get sympathy for Obama
They are proving to be very good
It’ll be alright. They have several body doubles lined up for all the candidates and high officials.
It’s from Hiliary.
What part of Canada? I lived in Scarborough for a summer and fall while I was trying to figure out if the University of Toronto was where I wanted to go to college. I loved it. Ok, thats off subject to be sure.
Could someone please clue me in to what the heck this post is about?
No we wouldn't. Most of us understand that prodigious amounts of BS travels through cyberspace via email every day. Nothing to get excited about.
He was electrocuted?
Actually it looks from the body of it that they are trying to sell the typical stuff pitched in spam.
Hillary showed up in a thong...
No. Cocaine overdose.
I can’t speak for this particular e-mail, but I do know that it’s a common tactic to put a shocking header on an e-mail to get people to open it. Then there’s a video or photo attached which contains malware.
There was one going around that said “Angelina Jolie dies in bizarre accident” and it was an attempt to get people to open a malware file. I’m guessing this is along those lines. If so, it’s not an attempt to get sympathy for Obama, instead an attempt to play off his fame to get people to open a malicious file.
Not exactly “breaking news” material.
Stealing copper from third rail in Chgo perhaps??
OK, what was Obama doing with Hillary’s hair dryer in the bath tub.
Actully this poster is way off base. I guess he hasn’t seen all of the smear cartoons about bush and his admin. If bush was muslim their would be 100s of fatwas already out on all of the idiots that smear him in cartoons in the newspaper. Keep your leftwing ideology up north where it belongs with our big retarted friend to the north!!
