Florida State Government Spammed Me!

Spam: Well, this is just incredible. I’ve just been spammed by a .gov domain — myfloridahousemail.gov.

The irony of my first .gov spam coming from Florida is inescapable.

The message came from an IP address registered to State of Florida/Dept. of Management Services, bldg 4050 esplanade way suite 115d, Tallahassee, FL 32399-0950 US. That address looks genuine. It really does look like it came from the Florida House of Representatives.

And it was sent to a spamtrap which is on a few spammer address lists, but has never been a genuine user address. And, obviously, I don’t live in Florida ;)
