I hate it when a spam message slips into my inbox, but at least this one was easy to spot:

Incongruous inbox listing

I've been aggressively forwarding copies of especially mortgage spam to the U.S. Federal Trade Commission "refrigerator" (spam@uce.gov) to add more heat to their evidence embers. None of it is CAN-SPAM compliant. And despite prosecutors' recent success at shutting down reportedly one of the worst in this category, that action seems only to have encouraged more mortgage spamming.

Not responding in any way to these guys would encourage them to find another line of work.

*Yet Another Stoopid Mortgage Spammer
