Marcie wants to make movies

Filed Under: Spam

Have you appeared in a sex video with a girl called Marcie in the last few days?

If so, you probably wouldn't be surprised about receiving an email like this:

Email from Marcie

If however, as I suspect, you aren't a worker in the X-rated porn movie industry then you really should recognise that this spam email wasn't intended for you, and that clicking on the link to a GeoCities webpage isn't such a good idea.

After all, at this point you don't know if you're going to end up on a website hosting malicious code or some highly offensive content.

As it happens, this unsolicited email is pointing to a pornographic webpage with no obvious malware (at the moment at least).

Marcie's video website

Still, you probably don't want to click on the link or venture further forward.

The email may pretend to have been sent to you by accident, but hopefully no-one will be fooled into doing anything other than pressing "delete".
