Stupid Spam

So this weekend I got a spam marked as Atmos Energy, a natural gas company, saying my bill was overdue.

Naturally all of the links were fakes, leading to a Russian site. Another link going to a URL starting with swinstart…really? As in SWINDLE START? Jeez, you guys are ballsy.

There are 3 kickers here.

1. I don’t have gas run to my house. I’m all electric.

2. Atmos Energy doesn’t do business locally anymore. Back early last year their operations got bought out by Liberty Utilities.

3. I’m more than pretty sure that Alagasco would be who I would get service from anyway.


Way to know your target, there genius.
