Follow-Up to Yesterday

I know this spam is unrelated to yesterday's phishing attempt:

Thank you for your letter of Jun 7, your information arrived today.
Alright, here's the link to the site
If we can be of any further assistance, please let us know.
Sincerely, Some Person, Support Team manager.

It's almost as if the spam/phishing community (I use the term loosely) was answering my open letter from yesterday. At least that's what I'm telling myself.

Dear Helpdesk

Please close my account. It seems that I have a multitude of similar accounts all over the internet. I've neither asked for these accounts nor do I wish to continue to have them as all they do is generate illiterate messages asking me to close them. It would seem to me that it would be so much simpler if you just didn't open these accounts in the first place.

Yours etc.

(There - I've blown off some steam. Also, not a big fan of blogger's new look - I'm not trying to take this pro.)
