Swine flu spam already?


Screenshot from my spam folder a few minutes ago

It looks like it didn't take long for spammers/scammers to start cashing in on swine flu. Doing my weekly sweep of my spam folder do find false positives I saw this:

NY victims of swine flu
Super supplement for natural immunity improving
Georgine Kildow

While I find all spam designed to scam people out of money or to infect their machines irritating and sinister, scams involving diseases that are killing people just seem worse.
