Spammers, spammers

I logged into my blog today thinking of keeping my WordPress up-to-date, and surprisingly, there is one comment left on my blog.

Being a half-perished blog that has not been updated for years, I was naturally surprised to see someone decided to comment on my post, so I opened it up and here is what I see:

Hello ****,

I am interested in buying an advertising spot on your website/blog. Please

email me to discuss this possibility further at your earliest convenience.

We are open to any idea that would allow us to capture interested readers.

Please let me know if you’d be open to discussing advertising possibilities

further. If not, I thank you for your time.

A quick Google search turns out that I am not the only one getting this email:

And a quick IP search shows the following: IP address location & more:
IP address [?]: [Whois] [Reverse IP]
IP country code:     US
IP address country:     ip address flag United States
IP address state:     Florida
IP address city:     Fort Lauderdale
IP postcode:     33351
IP address latitude:     26.1807
IP address longitude:     -80.2753
ISP of this IP [?]:
Host of this IP: [?]: [Whois] [Trace]
Local time in United States:     2011-02-09 14:52

So I guess this is part of those spam that we get once a while that offer you a job to work at home and making whatever amount of cash promised?

Regardless of what, please be aware that this is a spam.

As for this one I got, obviously it went directly into the spam comment section.
