A couple of nights ago, my friend’s friend (Julie) received a random unsolicited email from firstname.lastname@example.org. Upon opening the message, she saw the following embedded advertisement:
As you can imagine, Julie was very surprised to see a couple of faces she recognized in the image! As was Kara, to whom Julie forwarded the message, and as was I when Kara in turn forwarded it along to me. I was as shocked as she was that Kenny and I were serving as models for a South American travel agency that we had never heard of. But even more baffling was the fact that this random image in a SPAM email from a totally obscure company, who apparently filched my image from Flickr but has no idea who I am, actually made its way back to me.
On another amusing note, the travel package described in the advertisement above includes a trip to the Brazilian side of Iguazu, which offers a panoramic view of the Cataratas, but nothing like the up close and personal experience shown in the photo, which was taken in Argentina.
