I have a "throw-away" account for reporting spam, as a "central clearance" for baiting scammers [Purchasing lower quality goat porn.--Ed.] and to my surprise I receive:
The "trough" is a clue, of course, not to mention the fact it is not addressed to a human ["Mr. I-Love-Goats"--Ed.], does not serve as a legal subpoena, Danish law trumps US law, even Canadian law, et cetera. Using a Mac I investigated the linkypoo and it lead to an actual well-rated webpage. Reported both and page was taken down.Trough this document we hereby inform you of the Litigation process started by Browns Media Marketing LLC against the company you represent.

Willmer Hale Law
I decided to search and . . . voila!
--J.D.Is “phishing” running rampant throughout the legal community? A few weeks ago, Professor Charlie Nesson of Harvard Law School fell victim to a phishing scam. As the HLS Help Desk helpfully explained at the time, “Phishing emails are fraudulent email messages claiming to be from a legitimate source that ask you to send confidential information such as username, password, date of birth, etc.”
The latest high-profile victim of a phishing attack is a leading law firm, WilmerHale. A mass email is going around, purportedly from “Brian Willmer” of “Willmer Hale,” regarding an alleged subpoena. The email is a fraud; as far as we know, there is no “Brian Willmer” of “Willmer Hale.” It contains a link that you definitely do not want to click on.
