Boy, these stock spammers are getting trickier and trickier. First I was bushwhacked with the seemingly innocuous, Jewish-relevant e-mail header "Yarmulke" which turned out to be pure spam. I swore they would not bamboozle me again.

I was wrong.

Today I received an e-mail from "Paulo SP" with the following header:

Subject: Holidays Chanukah Tu BShvat

Looked legit enough, so I opened it. Of course, it was stock spam, cleverly disguised as an e-mail for Jewish interests. Even the stock symbol, TORA, has its obvious appeal!

Is anyone else getting Jewish spam? If so, please post your examples here.

I got two of the same emails, they did have different 'from' names though.

I don't know what's more appalling: The fact that I get Jewish spam even though I'm even less frum than Madonna, these days; or the fact that I always open it, even though I ought to know better AND spam isn't kosher.

I get spam that sometimes uses Jewish names as the sender to make it look legit. And I'm waiting for the new Shansta pictorial...

I think that this piece of spam is aimed at Jews and the Japanese.
