    A lot of spam I get has the same or similar content and or same or similar email address. I just got 3 or 4 of these at the same time.

    For example, I just got spam from "CitiBank". I am sure this is an attempt to steal my id. But think how stupid this is.

    I got several emails

    Your got Renewed eBill Should Be Complete from American Express
    You have received a Renewed eBill from AT&T Bill
    Your have Renewed eBill Is Ready from Citibank Credit Card
    You have received a Recent eBill from AT&T Bill
    You have received a Recent eBill from AT&T Bill

    Those duplicates aren't a typo on my part they are the individual spam that I got! Even if Citibank was my company (and it isn't) who would be so stupid as to click on the links in the email when they see so many of the same type? That has to be a giant red flag. What are these idiot spammers thinking?

    The mob says theres a sucker born every second. Most of these are targeting the elderly. I've seen shows on em before and its usually a single elderly white male that falls for it, Statistically.
