If you can get the full headers, I'll trace this and determine if it's from a trojaned spambot box.
Signature file is under revision. This will be back shortly.

Hi Tuxedojack

I FWD you the e-mail from hotmail
As you may have noticed hotmail locks on to hot links and obscours the target
you do not really go where you think you are going by the route you think you are taking and when you get there you are not really there, just virtually, and if you time out you can't get back. LowWaterMark pointed this out to me.

I'll try and do some snooping on the three transfer links and to the rip off "product"
I e-mailed Lavasoft to give them yet another heads up.
I light of last weeks FTC victory over D-Squared you would think this kind of thing would lighten up. Ah Greed.

If you find anything get back to me. I intend to send the file to my contact at the FTC.
