Medz--Coming and Going

Of course the medz spammers have been around forever, many of them offering prescription drugs without prescriptions. Sometimes it's the real stuff, sometimes not.

But now that Vioxx has been taken off the market, I've seen new rounds of spam to lure former Vioxx users into class action lawsuits against the drug's maker. I won't visit the Web sites that these messages link to, but they and the messages they send seem to be operating within well-known spam regions of the Internet. I suspect they are more into gathering live email addresses (and perhaps other personal information) than doing anything to assist those who believe they were harmed by the drug.

Just one more spam angle that we should ignore at all costs.
