After some snooping, I found this message at one of the Web pages
cited in the spam message:
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Sir/Madam,

We are truly sorry for the spam that you recently received.
It was a forgery and was in NO way condoned
by or sent with the knowledge of either Joe Doll, HE.NET, or
Adgrafix.

This began by a free account on the joes.com server being
terminated for spamming. For revenge of his
termination, the spammer composed the fraudulent e-mail
and sent it out to several thousand users using
fake header information.

If you read the e-mail, you will see that none of the above
mentioned companies could possibly benefit
from the spammed message.

Unfortunately, there are no laws against spamming of this
type and the spammer remains anonymous.
The United Stated Federal Bureau of Investigation is
currently working on this case and criminal charges
of fraud can be brought against this individual once
the identity is revealed.

Again I would like to stress that none of the companies
mentioned in the spam condone spamming in any
way and all three organizations are working in
cooperation with the FBI to find and prosecute the
spammer to the fullest extent of the law.

We are sorry for the intruding message and we thank
you for your understanding.

Robert S. Bennett
President,Adgrafix
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

I hope the bastard is caught.

Someone who can read headers tells me that the message originated at
ibm.net. I believe mail to the postmaster is in order.
