Really Odd Spam…

I check my junk email folder every now and then.  Its a bit humorous the lengths some people will go to misspell Viagra.   But yesterday, some really odd spam arrived - 55 messages in total over about an hour and were sent to one an external alias I subscribe too. Other than a vague references to stock deals, the spam otherwise had no obvious purpose.  Here are a couple of examples:

What I find interesting is that the spam is not just random text, but appears to be blocks of text from various sources concatenated together - it also has a very British feel.

I wonder if this was an experiment and getting past spam filters, or something more nefarious such as denial of service attack.

    It’s designed to look like legitimate email and get past your spam filters.

    Denial of service doesn’t need to be that complicated!
