Got this in my SPAM email recently.
The subject read as follows:
"Domain Notification for PENBROWPERSON.COM : This is your Final Notice of Domain Listin..."
Curious, I clicked on the message. It contained nothing except my email said it had blocked images. Further curious, I clicked to show images. I was intrigued when my mouse pointer didn't change into a cursor, but I was still able to copy the following.
