Something New in Spam Crockery

Spammers sometimes try to make their illegal messages sound legitimate in one way or another. Look at this piece of trash:

From: "Email" <Email@------.net>

Burr Forwarding Services Inc.
New York, NY

If there is such an outfit as Burr Forwarding Services, Google (Web and News) doesn't know anything about it (until this posting). Their "forwarding" service uses a botnetted PC in South Korea. What a classy service. Frankly, it all sounds like burrshit to me.
